“This law looks like it’s going to be struck down. I’m telling you, all of the predictions, including mine [but not Randy’s, Ilya’s, Jonathan’s or mine!], that the justices would not have a problem with this law were wrong,” Toobin said Tuesday on CNN. “I think this law is in grave, grave trouble.”
Toobin may or may not be right, but after reading the oral argument transcript it’s pretty darn hard to see this as a slam-dunk 8-1 ruling favoring the government.
