Bloomberg's Greg Stohr notes the stare decisis issues of the case. Legal Times's Tony Mauro provides the best press summary of the case so far. The Legal Times also has a debate between Roy T. Englert Jr. and Daniel R. Walfish and Deborah Zuckerman and Elizabeth J. Cabraser. Cornell Law provies a preview. About half of the briefs can be found on the Supreme Court Times site; Findlaw also has the certiorari briefs. Howard Bashman found the Williams brief "surprisingly persuasive." Blogger Tim Sandefur was one of two counsels of record on the interesting Pacific Legal Foundation brief. Somehow ATLA managed to file two briefs, one on behalf of Mayola Williams through its Center for Constitutional Litigation, and one on behalf of itself as amicus. We covered the case earlier on Oct. 26; see also links therein.
