On an otherwise boring order day, Sotomayor (with RBG) dissented from a denial of cert. in a death penalty case, one relisted multiple times. On Twitter, Shon Hopwood (wife now in law school; just argued a case in federal appeals court) welcomed the dissent. Twenty years on death row raises a Breyer concern -- long time on death row -- but did not join. Maybe, it wasn't a good procedural case / wasn't likely to be granted cert., thus dissent of two. Update: Chris Geidner on Twitter opined that the other liberals might not have supported Sotomayor's procedural analysis. Meanwhile, in the Northern Mariana Islands 2A news.
