The Court hasn't even granted certiorari yet in the Sixth Circuit case, and won't be in session until October. There's no reason to believe that they will be ruling until later in the fall, at the earliest.

Subject: When's it Coming?
Sandy writes: I really and truly don't mean to be snarky, but given that life is short and it is now basically certain that the Supreme Court will be taking the case, is there any good reason for a non-masochist to read 300pp of opinions?
... book writers, unfortunately. Does anyone know a reasonable time line for when the Supreme Court will render an opinion on the case? Would it be as early as this summer? Would we have any reason to believe that the decision would be rushed before the presidential election, like the 4-horsemen did to Roosevelt, or would it be better to conceal it to afterward. More to the point, if there is no hanky panky, when SHOULD such a decision come out?
Regards and thanks.
