SC Watch

USSC did not decide on any SSM cases but Justice Sotomayor had another notable solo dissent of denial of cert., this time to underline the importance of providing mitigation evidence in a death penalty case, not to "explain" as much as to understand if the penalty is "deserved."  Its importance to a jury was also discussed in Anatomy of An Execution.
