The Supreme Court issued opinions in three cases today: n Ministry of Defense and Support for the Armed Forces of the Islamic Republic of Iran v. Elahi, Shinseki v. Sanders, and Arizona v. Gant. SCOTUSBlog has early details here.
I'll leave substantive analysis of these three decisions to others. For now, I jsut wanted to note that all three were closely divided, and all three produced different lineups.
- Elahi - Majority: Breyer, joined by Roberts, Alito, Thomas, Scalia, and Stevens. Dissenting (in part): Kennedy, Ginsburg, Souter.
- Sanders - Majority: Breyer, joined by Roberts, Alito, Thomas, Scalia,, and Kennedy. Dissenting: Souter, Stevens, Ginsburg.
- Gant - Majority: Stevens, joined by Ginsburg, Souter, Scalia, and Thomas. Dissenting: Breyer, Alito, Roberts, Kennedy.
