SCOTUS Notes for 4/25/12

No action out of SCOTUS this morning directly on criminal law.  The one opinion released today was a tax case.  I expect the stay of execution for Beunka Adams will reach the high court later today, with a petition by Adams if now that the Fifth Circuit has lifted lifts the stay and by the state if it does not.  See this story by Annette Falconer of KLTV.

The hot news is, of course, the Arizona immigration law argument, a civil case with criminal law implications.  Lyle Denniston at SCOTUSblog has this early report, indicating we may a get a relatively narrow opinion.
