Big Day For the Supreme Court Tomorrow!!

Or today if you are reading this on Monday.

SCOTUSblog live-blogs the Supreme Court’s handing down its opinions, and provides both the results and the links to the full opinions pretty much as soon as they are available. This coming Monday, the Court should be handing down opinions in four cases dealing with very significant issue — whether business methods are patentable (Bilski), whether the Second Amendment applies to state and local governments via the Fourteenth Amendment (McDonald), whether the appointment procedure for members of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board is constitutional (Free Enterprise Fund), and whether public universities may apply their antidiscrimination rules (including bans on discrimination based on religion and sexual orientation) to the officers of religious student groups (Christian Legal Society).

Of major news and blog interest will be the gun rights case and the Christian Legal Society case.

However one of the more important ones that could have huge effect will be the Bilski case. There are many software folks that are watching that case very very closely!!!

The smart on the gun rights is that the second amendment will be "incorporated" somehow against the States and local Govt. The real question that is of interest to many conservatives and in fact has divided them is how.
