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.

The note from Ross can be found below:

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.

MattsworknameWell, on another subject, Saw this, and while I know it's fox news, thuoght I should share it05/22/2015 - 1:34am
MechaCrashYeah, even I think IP needs to dial it back.05/22/2015 - 12:35am

MattsworknameRE doc, everyone has a tendancy to let emotion get ahead of them, especially in an annoymous forum like the web. We have have those moments. Ip however has nothing but those moments. it's why I stopped responding to him, regardless of what he thinks or05/21/2015 - 11:17pm
DocMelonheadNo offense, but I see your behaviors in the comment sections uncalled for.05/21/2015 - 8:51pm
DocMelonheadHell, I could use both Goth_Skunk and IronPatriot as an example of such behavior between the two.05/21/2015 - 8:43pm
Andrew EisenMock? Ridicule? No, we're talking about serious threats and abuse, not people being cheeky or mean. Big difference.05/21/2015 - 8:42pm
DocMelonheadIn fact I see both mocks and ridicule between both the GamerGate Supporters and GamerGate Critics.05/21/2015 - 8:41pm
DocMelonheadAs for the Harassment, well, this is the internet; people will mock and ridicule whoever they want, whenever they want, at all times.05/21/2015 - 8:40pm
Mattsworknamegoth I think all media news outlets have that disclaimer05/21/2015 - 8:39pm
Andrew EisenThat's an... interesting way to interpret that.05/21/2015 - 8:36pm
Goth_SkunkAnd re BBC vs Rockstar: Ahh. I missed that. Woops!05/21/2015 - 8:33pm
Goth_SkunkAE: The entire disclaimer is a valid reason why I don't take it seriously. Particularly the part where they say "the information contained herein may not be necessarily accurate or current." Because fact-checking, like math, is haaaaaaaaard!05/21/2015 - 8:32pm
MattsworknameI take all media reporting with huge skepticism. the Mary sue Included. that said, there not as bad Jezebel.05/21/2015 - 8:27pm
DocMelonheadYou could say that the Mary Sue only interested in Gender issues in pop culture, and they only see GamerGate as a Hate group that fight for the oppressive status quo.05/21/2015 - 8:22pm
MechaCrashWell, can't blame him for not expanding on it and missing stories here. Sealioning people demanding proof of claims and then calling them liars when they provide it is busy work!05/21/2015 - 8:20pm
Andrew EisenRe: Mary Sue - Uh, why exactly? Re: Rockstar - Yep, we reported that earlier today.05/21/2015 - 8:12pm
