Supreme Court Decides Padilla This Week

Most of the big cases I mentioned last week remain to be decided. That means they will be decided this week, maybe today.

I think that the Padilla case is so important that I almost titled this item “Supreme Court to decide if this is still a free country”. I am an optimist about big things, although not always about small, and something of a patriot, so I persist in the belief that the Supreme Court will get this one right. Just about all the lawyers I talk to agree, although no one thinks it will be the 9-0 vote that it deserves to be. Estimates cluster at 6-3 or 7-2.

If we're wrong in our predictions, and it goes badly, it's time to raise hell, or we will be remembered as the generation that let the American Experiment go sour.
