Citizens United to Be REARGUED

We know that Justice Alito does not have the majority opinion in CU. The first opinion has been released, in Ricci, and Justice Kennedy is the author. Because these are released in reverse order of seniority, maybe it is the Chief's opinion as Linda Greenhouse suggested in one of her recent Slate posts.

[more to come]

Still waiting...Ricci ruling and dissent being read from the bench...

Justice Scalia has written the opinion for the Court in Cuomo. This means Citizens United will be last...
