The orders today brought three "grants," two death penalty cases that have received some notice. One case case concerns how intellectual disability is proven in Texas but also includes a question about length of time on death row, a long term concern of Breyer. If solitary confinement is involved, that would also be a concern for Kennedy. The third is a racial gerrymander case; the two unanimous opinions (by Kagan/Sotomayor) appear pretty boring.

Update: Never mind. Corrected order; length of time not being decided. To be fair, as seen here, these "boring" opinions are of some importance at least in a baby step way.
