Supreme Court Tuesday

This morning the Supreme Court issued its weekly orders list.  Certiorari was granted in two civil cases.  The Court also decided two civil cases.

Two criminal cases are being argued today, neither too exciting from our point of view.  Bond v. United States merely asks whether a defendant has standing to raise a Tenth Amendment challenge to a federal criminal statute (answer: of course), not whether the challenge has merit.  United States v. Tinklenberg involves the federal Speedy Trial Act.

Update:  Robert Barnes covers the Bond case in the WaPo.
