Whole Lotta Grantin’ Going On:

Today the Supreme Court announced the results of the “long conference,” the Justices’ September conference in which they vote on the cert petitions that piled up over the summer. The Court granted 17 cases altogether, which you can find over at ScotusBlog. I was particularly interested to see the Court grant cert in Virginia v. Moore, a Fourth Amendment case that is a follow up to Atwater v. Lago Vista.

  UPDATE: The ‘big’ grants seem to be the cases on the constitutionality of voter ID laws and of execution protocols; see Lyle Denniston’s summary here.
