The SCOTUS denied rehearing in Kennedy v. Louisiana, as reported on SCOTUSBlog and the WSJ Law Blog (with a link to CAAFlog), a case in which our very own CAAFlog has played a prominent role. Here are links to prior CAAFlog coverage of Kennedy v. La., here, here, and here. Here are links to the two "statements" in the case, majority statement in denying rehearing and the statement of Justice Scalia and the Chief Justice. J. Scalia and the C.J. argued essentially that because the majority opinion was so bad, rehearing wasn't going to make a silk purse out of a sow's ear. Justices Alito and Thomas dissented from the denial of rehearing, but did not write separately. More from CAAFlog later on another potential factual gaff in the Kennedy statement.
