More on the timing of the Court's consideration of the various cert petitions
Lyle Denniston has this terrific post over at SCOTUSblog walking through the details of the timing of the Court's consideration of the six pending petitions for writs of certiorari. The post is worth a careful read in its entirety, but the bottom line is this: if the Court wishes to consider each of the petitions (and the responses filed to those petitions) before making a decision as to which case (or cases) to grant, its decision would likely come from its conference on December 9 (with an order either later that day or on the following Monday, December 11).
