Tomorrow Big Day at Supreme Court

Chief Justice John Roberts announced that tomorrow the Supreme Court will issue opinions in the remaining cases from the October 2007 term. From Scotusblog's Lyle Denniston:
At the close of Wednesday’s public session, Chief Justice John G. Roberts, Jr., announced that the Court will issue all remaining decisions for the Term at 10 a.m. Thursday. The test case on whether the Second Amendment protects an individual right to possess a gun is among those remaining (District of Columbia v. Heller, 07-290). The others still pending are cases on the constitutionality of the so-called “Millionaire’s Amendment” on campaign finance (Davis v. FEC, 07-320), and on federal regulators’ power to undo wholesale energy sales contracts (Morgan Stanley Capital v. Public Utility District, 06-1457, and a companion case).
Lots of fodder tomorrow for Court watchers.

Today's decisions included Kennedy v. Louisiana, the death penalty for child rape case.
