SCOTUS Watch: Clearing Way For Finale

The wait continues. A few notable cases (see SCOTUSBlog etc.) but nothing really big. Kagan has a bit of fun with a comic book case, limited strings put to searching hotel guestbooks, some protection for a person in detention (with Scalia along with Roberts again providing a narrow view of liberty) and a return of the "raisin case" that the conservatives seemed to take a tad too seriously as some big threat of government oppression. That was 8-1 (Sotomayor) though the other three liberals questioned the lack of "just compensation."
