Programming note: On Monday, I will be away from the computer until nighttime, because during the day I will be in Salisbury, Connecticut, taking advantage of my complimentary registration to attend this event.

Also on Monday, the U.S. Supreme Court will issue opinions in argued cases starting at 10 a.m. eastern time. You can access those decisions just as soon as the Court posts them online via this link. And at 9:30 a.m. eastern time on Monday, the Court will issue an Orders List, which can be accessed very shortly after that time via this link.

Additional posts will appear here either Monday night or Tuesday morning.
