SCOTUS Ends 2016 (Scheduled)

After holding it for multiple conferences, SCOTUS (Kagan/Breyer dissented on the record, Breyer separately commenting in a dissent regarding another death penalty case) denied a request to decide if Ohio could try again to execute someone. After news reports of a botched execution just occurring, this is particularly depressing. Another brief unanimous decision and the scheduled orders/decisions of '16 are complete. Good riddance.

Update: A few more grants. Nothing looks that notable.
