With the last Friday orders list of the fiscal year, the Court released opinions in 19 cases today. The Court also granted review in four others — filling its December calendar and setting one case for argument in January 2012.
With today’s list, the Court also shifted to only issuing PDF versions of its opinions instead of releasing both a PDF and an HTML version. When I get a chance this afternoon, I will be doing a quick inventory to see which features might have broken on my docket site. (( Among other things, I’m not yet sure how this affects my statistics and vote tracking, which were built on the old orders-list format. With the end of the fiscal year, I’m already getting requests for those numbers — and now they’re a little farther away. ))
Once that is figured out, I will be adding summaries of the most important cases and the new grants. There are some fun ones.
