The US Supreme Court opened its October 2013 term today.  The orders list is here. As expected, no new cases were taken up for full briefing and argument.  A shorter list of cases taken up was announced last Tuesday, noted here,  here, here.  Today's list contains a number of "vacate and remand" orders where a case is sent back to a lower court to reconsider in light of a US Supreme Court precedent decided after the lower court's decision.  There are a bunch of unremarkable procedural orders, and then a very long list of cases turned down.

Among the capital cases previewed here September 26, the remaining prisoners' petitions were all denied.  Arizona's petition in Ryan v. Hurles, No. 12-1472, has been "relisted" to be considered again this Friday, October 11.
