Report: SCOTUS To Issue One Opinion This Week

February 22, 2011 -

SCOTUS Blog's THIS WEEK AT THE COURT says that the court will issue at least one opinion this week (on Tuesday), while a note on Greta Van Susteren's Gretawire blog claims that court watchers should keep an eye out for opinions on a number of cases including Schwarzenegger v. Entertainment Merchants. The note comes from Lee Ross, who covers the Supreme Court for FOX News.

The note from Ross can be found below:

From: Ross, Lee

Re: Report: SCOTUS To Issue One Opinion This Week

I heard the Court will be issuing opinions both today and tomorrow. Either way, it still seems a bit early for this case-we'll probably get a decision on Snyder before we get EMA.

Re: Report: SCOTUS To Issue One Opinion This Week

Unless SCOTUS decides to release both the Snyder and EMA decisions and opinions at the same time.

Geaux Saints, Geaux Tigers, Geaux Hornets, Jack Thompson can geaux chase a chupacabra. Hell will stay frozen over for quite a while since the Saints won the Super Bowl.

Geaux Saints, Geaux Tigers, Geaux Pelicans. Solidarity for the Saints = No retreat, no surrender. 2013 = Saints' revenge on the NFL. Even through the darkest days, this fire burns always.

Re: Report: SCOTUS To Issue One Opinion This Week

That is possible.  they'll probably be close in timeline at any rate, as there is *some* (but of course not perfect) overlap in the issues in the 2 cases.  and of course they were argued only a few weeks apart as I recollect.

Re: Report: SCOTUS To Issue One Opinion This Week

About a month apart. Snyder v. Phelps was one of the first cases they heard oral arguments this term, and Schwarzenegger v. EMA was in the first week of November.

Geaux Saints, Geaux Tigers, Geaux Hornets, Jack Thompson can geaux chase a chupacabra. Hell will stay frozen over for quite a while since the Saints won the Super Bowl.

Re: Report: SCOTUS To Issue One Opinion This Week

being ignorant in the legal system, this opinion seems to be an official statement (rather than just, you know, an off hand opinion).

Is this just a little preview in how the discussion is going, or is this the final word of the court? 

Re: Report: SCOTUS To Issue One Opinion This Week

My understanding, which when it comes to the American legal system is in no way complete, is that this is the final word of the court.  Saying it's the court's "decision" may be a bit more clear than saying it's their "opinion".  Though I believe opinion is the technically correct word.

Re: Report: SCOTUS To Issue One Opinion This Week

So I just watched the SCOTUSblog and I guess Shwarzennegar v. EMA wasn't decided today.  Is that correct?

 

Re: Report: SCOTUS To Issue One Opinion This Week

I checked The supreme court website myself, They haven't decided it yet

Watching JT on GP is just like watching an episode of Jerry springer only as funny as the fights

America has just became its own version of the Jerry Springer Show after a bizarre moment in Florida involving a carnival worker.

Re: Report: SCOTUS To Issue One Opinion This Week

They have issued a couple of opinions today, but none of them were listed here. Keep your fingers crossed...


Re: Report: SCOTUS To Issue One Opinion This Week

This could be it, guys!  

I'm going to be frequently checking this site for updates all day.............

I can't wait.  If we win, it will be hillarious to watch those idiots at fauxNews be forced to write a piece about how "their side" lost!  lol

Re: Report: SCOTUS To Issue One Opinion This Week

More likely they'll just never mention it ever again.

Re: Report: SCOTUS To Issue One Opinion This Week

I agree But like beardoggX said, given that the court found that it's vague and that it may offend the 1st amendant rights of adults, I doubt it will pass constitutional Muster

Re: Report: SCOTUS To Issue One Opinion This Week

What did they say about the first amendment rights of adults again? Its been a while since I read it. I know it would mean stores could stop selling these games to anyone of any age but I don't think they talked about that.

Re: Report: SCOTUS To Issue One Opinion This Week

That is the slippery slope argument. Because of the vagueness of the "graphic violence" section, just about any game could potentially fail the test and be regulated, but noone will know for sure until someone complains. This would eventually result in game stores "playing it safe" and refusing to stock any game that they feel could result in a fine for a mistake.

"This would eventually result in game stores "playing it safe" and refusing to stock any game that they feel could result in a fine for a mistake."

To add to that, it could also result in publishers "playing it safe" by not funding such projects and developers "playing it safe" by not creating them.

MaskedPixelanteOf course it's improved. At launch, Origin was scanning your entire hard drive, but now it's just scanning your browsing history. If that's not an improvement, I dunno what is!07/29/2014 - 8:59pm

Sora-ChanSo it's just a matter of having better emulation software. If it can be done with a 3DS game, with all the memory and what not it takes up, it can be done with a GBA title through emulation.07/29/2014 - 7:30pm
Sora-ChanOther VC titles for the NES and Gameboy had the same setup where you couldn't access the homescreen without quitting out of the game til a later update when those games were released for the public outside of the founder program.07/29/2014 - 7:28pm
Sora-Chanthe 3DS can, and does, run GBA games, as seen by the founder gifts, which included a number of GBA titles. As for running GBA games and still having access to the home screen, I beleive it's more of the game emulation software needs to be updated.07/29/2014 - 7:27pm
Matthew Wilsonthe 3ds already swaps os's with the original ds. plus I dont think people expect miverse interaction when playing a gba game.07/29/2014 - 6:06pm
MaskedPixelanteBut that's not the issue, the 3DS is perfectly capable of emulating GBA games. The problem is that it doesn't have enough available system resources to run it alongside the 3DS OS, and thus it doesn't have access to stuff like Miiverse and save states.07/29/2014 - 5:45pm
Matthew WilsonI am well aware that it requires more power, but if a GBA emulator could run well on a original psp, than it should work on a 3ds.07/29/2014 - 5:36pm
ZenThe reason the SNES could run Gameboy, or the Gamecube could run GBA was because their adapters included all of the necessary hardware to do it in the respective add-ons. The systems were just conduits for control inputs and video/sound/power.07/29/2014 - 4:51pm
ZenMatthew: Emulation takes more power than people realize to run a game properly. You can make something run on less, but Nintendo...as slow as they are at releasing them..makes them run as close to 100% as possible. Each game has its own emulator for it.07/29/2014 - 4:47pm
Matthew Wilsonkind of hard to believe since the 3ds is atleast as powerful as the gamecube hardware wise.07/29/2014 - 4:27pm
MaskedPixelanteYes, the 3DS has enough power to run 16-bit emulators, but not at the same time it's running the 3DS systems themselves. You could run the games, but you wouldn't get save states or Miiverse.07/29/2014 - 4:04pm
InfophileRunning GBA on 3DS shouldn't be hard. The DS had flashcarts sold for it that added just enough power to emulate GBA and SNES games, so the 3DS should have more than enough natively.07/29/2014 - 3:37pm
MaskedPixelanteIt's a bunch of people whining about boycotting/pirating Trails in the Sky FC because XSEED didn't license the Japanese dub track, which consists of about 10 lines per character.07/29/2014 - 11:27am
