"Top Courts Value the Attorney-Client Privilege Differently": Traditionally, a new U.S. Supreme Court Justice's first opinion for the Court is supposed to be unanimous and noncontroversial.

Justice Sonia Sotomayor's first majority opinion, which issued in December 2009, was nearly unanimous, but it has proved to be at least somewhat controversial. Indeed, only last month the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania issued a decision reaching the opposite result.

This month's installment of my monthly "Upon Further Review" column appears in today's edition of The Legal Intelligencer, Pennsylvania's daily newspaper for lawyers, and addresses the subject of this disagreement. You can access my column by clicking here.

Access online today's Order List and opinion in an argued case of the U.S. Supreme Court: The nation's highest Court has posted online today's opinions and Order List some 30 minutes before they will be announced in open court.

You can access today's Order List at this link. The Court granted review in three cases, including Arizona v. United States (with Justice Elena Kagan's recusal noted in that case). The Court also called for the views of the Solicitor General in two cases.

Justice Kagan delivered the opinion for a unanimous Court in Judulang v. Holder, No. 10-694. You can access the oral argument transcript at this link.

The Court today also issued a unanimous per curiam summary reversal in Hardy v. Cross, No. 11-74.

Update: No doubt recognizing its early posting error, the Court has temporarily removed its Order List and these opinions from the Court's web site. If you haven't obtained access to them yet, you will simply need to wait until 10 a.m. There could also be additional opinions announced in argued cases, as the early posting of Justice Kagan's opinion in the Judulang case did not indicate whether any other opinions in argued cases will issue today. The Court announces signed majority opinions in reverse seniority order, meaning that on a day when Justice Kagan has one or more signed majority opinions to announce, her opinion(s) will be announced first.

Second update: The Court is only issuing one opinion in an argued case today. Stay tuned for news coverage of how the Court managed accidentally to make public its Order List and opinions 30 minutes early. And perhaps the SEC can look into whether any unusual trading took place during that 30 minutes based on the information contained in the Order List.

In early news coverage, The Associated Press has reports headlined "High court to look at state immigration laws"; "Court overturns deportation decision"; and "Court: Can lawsuit against casino go forward?"
