SCOTUSblog has this interesting post about the cases that remain to be decided in the current Supreme Court term.
Of particular note is that it seems almost certain that Justice Stevens and Justice Souter are writing the majority opinions in Miller-El (a death penalty case involving a claim of racial discrimination in jury selection) and Raich (a case challenging the federal government’s right to prohibit the personal use of marijuana for medicinal purposes). There’s no way of knowing which is them is writing which opinion, but it hardly matters – I’d guess that both of their views on both cases are the same. I’d say the chances are about 90% that Mr. Miller-El (the defendant) will win his case and it will once again be sent back to the lower courts for further proceedings (the lower courts really screwed this one up), and that federal authority over the personal use of marijuana, including for medical purposes, will be upheld. I predicted months ago that Raich would be decided 8-1 (Thomas dissenting) in favor of the government, and I’ll stand by that prediction. We should know soon.
