This week begins the long summer stretch on the Court’s calendar. For the next four weeks, that calendar looks precisely like this:

On Monday, the Court is scheduled to hold a private conference. Any cases decided or petitions set for argument should be noted on the Court’s regular Friday order list.

The Court has not yet issued its argument schedule for the fall, but it has already chosen at least 16 cases to be heard. (( There is a little uncertainty about whether (and when) argument will be held in the additional case In re Citigroup Global Markets, Inc., No. 08-0289, petition, which is currently abated. ))
