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. 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.

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.

MattsworknameI still hold that not having the origonal cast invovled in any way hurts this movie, and unless the 4 actresses in the lead roles can some how measure up to the comic timing of the origonal cast, i just don't see it being a success08/02/2015 - 12:46am
