A new wave of courtesy at the Court?

Justice Breyer a few months back provided a "courtesy fifth" to stay a win for a trans student because four justices wanted to hear the case during the recess. No update from him when they took the case. Now, CJ Roberts, clearer he rejects things on the merits, did so in a death penalty case. Kennedy silent (he was in the majority in Glossip and this case involves that sort of thing), Alito/Thomas dissenting. A person dying is a tad different. To be cont.

And Also: Special event in honor of Scalia, so special television was present for part of it. Election law order posted online, not (as of around 1PM Sat.) on website yet. Come on guys.
