Supreme Court McCutcheon Opinion Coming Next Week?

SCOTUSBlog reports the Court will issue one or more opinions Tuesday. Although it is unlikely the Court will issue an opinion in the McCutcheon campaign finance case argued in October, because controversial cases with multiple opinions usually take longer to draft and release, it is possible that the opinion could be released Tuesday. This would be especially likely if the Court punts in the case, as Justice Breyer and others suggested at oral argument might be advisable.  The Court could remand the case back to the lower court for fact finding on the nature of the kind of joint fundraising committee fundraising which could occur if the courts blow up the federal aggregate limits.

Again, I’m not saying this is likely, but it is possible.
