Although there were no decisions handed down in today’s order list, the Court did make some changes to its upcoming oral argument calendar. The Court filled out its April 2 argument calendar and assigned two cases (so far) to its April 22, 2008 calendar, when the Court will be sitting at Texas Tech University in Lubbock.
Now being argued Wednesday April 2, 2008
- City of Waco v. Kelley, No. 07-0485 [granted on 2-15-2008 and discussed here].
This is the case that garnered so much attention for its colorful dissent, which included a mock letter that began “Dear City of Waco, Sorry to put you through this, but you are going to have to go to the Supreme Court in Austin, again. … Good luck on your trip to Austin.”
Something just wouldn’t have felt right if that case had been assigned to the Court’s sitting in Lubbock.
