Hi all, Tom should be with us shortly
Good morning from the Court's press room.
Amy is at the arguments this morning
Today's arguments are both on voting rights. See Art Lien's great sketch on the top of our blog.
It is not a photo; just Art's creative pens.
Arguments begin after today's opinion or opinions are announced. Maybe 10 or 15 after 10.
Buzzer just sounded: 5 minutes until session opens. Opinions will be first action of the day.
Almost surely only one or two opinions this early in the term.
Only one opinion, Shapiro v. McManus.
Federal law permits the petitioners to proceed before a three-judge court.
By Justice Scalia, unanimous. Fourth Circuit reversed.
Howard Wasserman will have our coverage in this case.
The next possible opinion day is next Monday. There almost certainly will be one or more decisions then.
Thank you everyone for joining us today.
