Tea Leaves and Smoking Guns

Nothing very exciting from the Supreme Court today. I recommend Scotusblog for updates, now and always. As Tom Goldstein notes there, the only remaining undecided case on the docket from the March argument calendar is DC v. Heller, the Second Amendment case. The only Justice who hasn't announced a majority opinion from March is Justice Scalia. Thus, Justice Scalia likely is the author of the majority (or perhaps the plurality) opinion in Heller, which means that it should soon be possible to pack a pistol in DC.

The next day that opinions come down will be Wednesday. The Court is almost sure to wrap up its term by the end of the week.
