Only one criminal case was taken up by the Supreme Court today, a federal resentencing case, Pepper v. United States, No. 09-6822. Eighth Circuit opinion is here. Today's Supreme Court orders list is here.

The Court denied certiorari in the case of Missouri murderer Reginald Clemons, No. 09-1274.

Was 09-1274 the LI challenge?

The sentencing judge in Pepper (this time around) was Judge Linda Reade who was also the sentencing judge in the Sholom Rubashkin case last week.

"Was 09-1274 the LI challenge?"

Yes.

Hopefully, the Supreme Court of Missouri will set a date for Joseph Franklin very soon. Justice is long overdue.
