Waiting on the Supreme Court…


UPDATE: No major decisions today. Next possible date is Monday June 24.

SCOTUSblog posted a Vine invitation to its Supreme Court liveblog which is underway. The Court will issue some rulings today, any of which could be one of the big three cases – voting rights, affirmative action, and of course, marriage.

Opinions issued at 10am. SCOTUSblog will be on it here.

While you're waiting you may want to check out our legal editor Ari Ezra Waldman's two recent pieces on live after the SCOTUS ruling. In his most recent column, he looks at the complexities of 'federal marriage law' and what might happen if DOMA is overturned. And in his first, he looked at what might happen to civil unions and domestic partnerships.

And later this morning, he'll have a new column addressing what happens if there is no "standing" or "jurisdiction".

    This post exemplifies why Vine is an annoying and useless medium. Not only does this video convey nothing, but it is poorly shot and jarring to look at. A still image would’ve been more effective.

    For those that don’t know, the court secretary gives a list of decisions coming down to the press early in the morning and then the opinions are distributed in bulk kinda of like when you get your books at school. Sometimes the justices will make an appearance.

    “Waiting on the Supreme Court…”

    Waiting FOR the Supreme Court…, not ON!

    Waiting ON is ‘to serve’, and even in the southeastern U.S., where it is sometimes used interchangeably with FOR, it creates unneeded ambiguity.
