Court Adds Ten More Cases to the OT08 Docket:
The Supreme Court held its "long conference" on Monday, and it has agreed to take 10 new cases (seven of them criminal cases). You can see the list and a quick description here. Before today, the forthcoming Term was notable for having lots of pretty minor cases. Based on a quick skim, the new cases look like more of the same. None of the granted cases look particularly earth-shattering, at least so far: A bunch look like pretty easy reversals.
