First Time in 25 Years

On Monday the Supreme Court issued an order affirming the lower court's decision in American Isuzu Motors v. Ntsebeza because the Court lacked a quorum (six Justices) to hear the case.  Chief Justice Roberts and Justices Kennedy, Breyer, Alito recused themselves from consideration of the petition for cert. because of investments in(or, in Kennedy's case, familial connections to) some of the many corporations involved in the dispute.  For more, check out SCOTUSblog's discussion here.


(By the way, expect a lot of "catching up" posts about the Court on here over the next few days .)
