There have been no opinions launched by the Supreme Courtroom right this moment, however there was an Order List. The Courtroom granted petitions for certiorari in two associated instances regarding the usage of social media by authorities officers (discussed by Eugene below). It denied certiorari in a number of dozen extra.
Though there have been no opinions dissenting from the denials of certiorari, the Courtroom’s order record famous two instances during which Justice Kavanaugh famous that he voted to grant: Steward v. Gable and Suncor Energy (U.S.A.) Inc., v. Board of County Commissioners of Boulder County. The primary was a petition filed by Oregon difficult a decrease courtroom’s grant of a habeas petition. The second was one among a number of petitions filed by oil corporations searching for to have state widespread regulation local weather change fits eliminated to federal courtroom. (I blogged on these later instances here, here, and here.)
The Supreme Courtroom’s docket has shrunk dramatically for the reason that Eighties. Oral arguments may be longer, however the variety of opinions is declining. Certainly, prior to now few years the Courtroom has issued fewer selections in argued instances than at any time prior to now 150 years. Maybe Justice Kavanaugh’s votes for certiorari point out that a minimum of one justice believes the justices may stand to listen to and resolve a couple of extra instances.
