Hammon and Davis decided
The Supreme Court decided Hammon v. Indiana and Davis v. Washington today, in a consolidated opinion written for the Court by Justice Scalia; Justice Thomas wrote a separate opinion. Hammon won 8-1 and Davis lost 9-0. You may see the syllabus and the opinions by clicking here. I'm obviosuly delighted by the victory in Hammon (the case I argued) and very disappointed by the result in Davis. Commentary on the decisions by several people, including me, may be found at www.scotusblog.com/ . For today, I will probably not comment further here or there (we've just started a vacation, I got very little sleep last night, and I am going to take a nap!), but your comments are more than welcome, and I'll join in later.
