Monday round-up
Today the Supreme Court will issue decisions in July for the first time since 1996, after the coronavirus pandemic forced the postponement of oral arguments in 10 cases. Greg Stohr reports at Bloomberg that “[t]he U.S. Supreme Court is poised to cap a term like no other with potentially blockbuster decisions covering birth control, religious rights and President Donald Trump’s efforts to keep his financial records private.” At The Hill, Harper Neidig and John Kruzel highlight “the five most-anticipated decisions pending before the court.”

Here is a link to Colorado v. Baca: https://www.supremecourt.gov/opinions/19pdf/19-518_6k47.pdf

Bottom line: "A state may enforce an elector's pledge to support his party's nominee--and the state voters' choice--for President."

8. It'll be released on the last day of opinions.

Nothing is "up" so much as they will release the biggest cases on the final day.

7. Thanks so much for joining, everyone.

Thanks so much for joining, everyone. Coverage of today's opinions is coming from Amy and Professor Amanda Shanor. Five decisions to go: two regarding subpoenas for the president's tax returns and other financial records, two regarding the religion clauses and one on whether much of eastern Oklahoma is a Native American reservation. No word yet on whether we'll have one last opinion day or more, but we'll let you know as soon as we hear, and will be back to live blog as usual. Stay safe!
