Editor's Note :

We are expecting one or more decisions in argued cases tomorrow at 10 a.m. We will be live-blogging the opinion(s) as they are released. However, there is no live blog of tomorrow’s oral argument in King v. Burwell. We will have coverage of that argument as soon as possible after it is finished; the transcript should be available tomorrow afternoon, and the audio will be available on Friday.
Wednesday's live blog will be available here.

Thaler v. Haynes

Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
09-273 5th Cir. Not Argued Feb 22, 2010 9-0 Per Curiam OT 2009

Holding: Without hearing oral argument, the Court summarily reversed a lower court decision that appeared to hold that a trial judge must find that a prosecutor dismissed a jury for a discriminatory (and therefore unconstitutional) reason, when the only justification the prosecutor can give for the dismissal was based on the demeanor of the juror, but the trial judge resolving the challenge to the dismissal did not personally observe the juror.

Judgment: Reversed and remanded in a per curiam opinion on February 22, 2010.
