Big Rulings from the U.S. Supreme Court?



From USA Today, "As high court term winds down, high drama expected":

WASHINGTON -- The nine Supreme Court justices will enter through crimson velvet drapes this morning and take their seats at a mahogany bench to announce decisions in some of the most closely watched cases of their annual term.

Twenty-six cases await resolution, including disputes over Guantanamo detainees, Washington, D.C.'s handgun ban and damages arising from the Exxon Valdez oil spill of 1989.

The ritual Monday and on select days throughout this month -- the last of the session -- is long-standing. In June, anticipation in the courtroom is palpable. Rulings will be blared across the Internet, read on the radio and headlined in newspapers.

We're aflutter with palpitations, it's true.
