Waiting for the Supreme Court; National Law Journal article on pending cert petitions

The Supreme Court will have the cert petitions in Hammon v. Indiana and Davis v. Washington before it at its conference on Friday; my understanding is that it will probably announce its decisions whether to take the cases on Monday. Meanwhile, here is a link to a helpful article in the National Law Journal discussing these two cases and the split among jurisdictions in treating fresh accusations made to governmental agents.
