Court Takes Commerce Clause Case:

This morning the Supreme Court accepted cert in United States v. Comstock, a commerce clause challenge to post-sentence civil commitment of sex offenders. This case will be the first test of the Roberts Court's commitment to the federalism principles embraced (even if somewhat inconsistently) by the Rehnquist Court. The cert papers are on SCOTUSBlog here. Our prior posts on the case are here.

I'd post more, but I'm in Montana at the moment. So maybe later, and perhaps I'll be able to put up one of our bear pictures too.
