US Supreme Court grants cert in 2 cases

| | Comments (0) | TrackBacks (0)

This morning the US Supreme Court granted certiorari in two cases.  In Christian Legal Society v. Martin the Court will decide whether it is unconstitutional for a state-run college (Hastings Law School) to exclude from official status a student religious group that limits its officers and voting members to those who accept its religious beliefs.  In Dillon v. U.S., the Court will consider whether the Court's 2005 ruling in U.S. v. Booker, which made the federal sentencing guidelines advisory rather than mandatory, applies to sentence modification proceedings.

The briefs in these cases and today's order list are available via Scotusblog.
