Supreme Court Hears Final Oral Argument

    The United States Supreme Court heard its final oral argument of the current Term yesterday. The case, Nevada Commission on Ethics v. Carrigan, raises the question whether public officials have any First Amendment protection for the votes they cast.    
    Through today the Court has issued 39 opinions this Term. As is often the case,  many of the major cases of the Term will be decided in May and June.

Note: Because of other commitments, including a series of deadlines for appellate briefs, I had to put Full Court Pass on the back burner for two months. I thank readers for their inquiries and concerns. I also was just informed that I have been selected a "Super Lawyer" for appeals in 2011, an accolade my peers have accorded me since 2006. I appreciate the honor.
