Text & History has a preview on the case of Padilla v. Kentucky, which was argued in the Supreme Court today.
UPDATE: Here (Download Padilla-transcript) is the transcript to the oral argument. I was not at the argument but, at least from my read of the transcript, the Justices, including new Justice Sotomayor, aggressively questioned counsel in a fashion that made it hard (for me at least) to predict the outcome.
