It could be Health Care or it could be Arizona Immigration decided today . . . or both, or neither. . . . I'm gathering tweets now because when (or if) the verdict - any verdict - comes this morning, Twitter is going to explode.
UPDATE: It was "Or Nothing" - no ruling on Health Care today! See you next Monday!
NPR: Ruling Could Come Today
Word about which of its remaining decisions the court releases today should come just after 10 a.m. ET. The court's website is here.From the LA Times
We'll be watching for news from the court. So will SCOTUSBlog, which is always quick with updates.
WASHINGTON -- Television cameras will surround the Supreme Court on Thursday morning, as they did Monday, anticipating something that may, again, not happen.
The momentous healthcare decision could be announced Thursday. Or not. All we really know is that it is extremely likely to be handed down by the following Thursday, June 28, when the court is expected to end its current term.
. . . The decisions are printed inside the ornate 1935 Corinthian-style building, and handed out to reporters as the justice who authored the opinion announces the decision from the bench shortly after 10 a.m. By tradition the senior justice goes last, so healthcare is likely to be the last decision announced on the day it comes down.
Only a few times in modern history have the results leaked ahead of time, once reputedly from a comment by a justice to a reporter, another time from a talkative printer.
The court is not meeting Friday, so if the healthcare decision does not come Thursday, the next opportunity would be Monday.
