SCOTUS Releasing Orders Lists Earlier

The US Supreme Court press office issued this press release today:

Beginning with October Term 2012, the regularly scheduled Order Lists of the Supreme Court of the United States will be released by the Court at 9:30 a.m. rather than at 10 a.m. as had been the previous practice. On days when the Court is in session, the change will provide members of the Supreme Court Bar, the public, and the media an opportunity to review Order Lists before the Court sits at 10 a.m.

Regularly scheduled Order Lists are typically issued on each Monday that the Court sits. On occasion, regularly scheduled Order Lists are issued on days that the Court is not sitting.  The issuance of such a list is announced in advance. Miscellaneous orders may be issued in individual cases at any time. Scheduled Order Lists will continue to be posted on the Court's Website (http://www.supremecourt.gov/orders/orders.aspx) immediately following their release by the Court. Miscellaneous orders will continue to be posted on the Website the day of issuance or the next day in the instance of some emergency applications.

The change in practice will go into effect on Tuesday, September 25, 2012.

Today is the "long conference," when the Court considers a big stack of petitions seeking review of lower court decisions, built up over the summer.  Look for a short list of cases taken up tomorrow and a long list of cases turned down next Monday.  The Cert Pool has the conference list here.
