There was one exception to the denials-later practice today. The Court turned down the case of Florida murderer Marshall Gore. As noted in the prior post, Gore's claim of mental incompetence has been found to be "patently a fabrication." He is scheduled for execution today.
The other capital cases will probably be denied Monday, although one or more might be "relisted" to be considered again at a future conference.
The case of a traffic stop based on an anonymous call is described in a separate post.
The Court also took up the case of United States v. Castleman, No. 12-1371, another variation on the federal statute barring gun possession by people with certain convictions, in this case a "misdemeanor crime of domestic violence." This appears to be a pure statutory interpretation argument, not involving the constitutional question of whether Congress has the authority to micromanage who is allowed to possess a gun.
