Orders continued to deal with juvenile sentencing and contraceptive mandate cases. Election law case disposed on standing. Alito/Thomas added a lot of material to both orders and opinions (two cases). Use of "amica curiae"; appointment covered here. Meanwhile, Clinton's anti-Heller comment framed as a potentially fairly narrow regulation issue.

Update: Here's a summary of all three cases that might be deemed "baby steps for racial justice." No concurring opinion (Marshall, Breyer/Souter noted support in the past) about ending peremptory challenges etc. As have I. That case is particularly about a unusual case involving a past era where such blatant gotchas were more likely. But, one step at a time.
