"A Criminal Law Focus to Begin the U.S. Supreme Court’s New Term"

Rory K. Little has this post at White Collar Crime ProfBlog, summarizing the early cases on the Court's argument docket:

In a somewhat unprecedented calendaring wrinkle, the entire first week of oral arguments at the Supreme Court this coming Term, and 7 of the 8 cases to be argued in all of October, are criminal-law-based cases. This is probably not intentional, but rather reflects hesitancy in certiorari consideration last Spring by an evenly-divided eight-Justice Court.
