Another reason Roberts needs confirmation by October

The Supreme Court last week released its fall schedule, which begins Oct. 3. The first day features cases on worker's pay and Indian rights. The second day is free. The third day?

Gonzales v. Oregon, case #04-623 — federal power to bar use of drugs for assisted suicide.

Nov. 30 will also be an interesting day:
  • Scheidler v. NOW (04-1244) and Operation Rescue v. NOW (04-1352) — use of RICO law to stop abortion clinic blockades
  • Ayotte v. Planned Parenthood of N. New. England (04-1144) — need for health exception in teen abortion parental notice law

    I'll be at the oral argument on November 30th, and will be liveblogging (to the extent possible) at FUMARE. It will be an interesting day indeed!

    Nice blog, by the way.
