OT2016 #16: "His Elegant Fountain Pen"

We took a week off, and now we're making it up to you with an episode chock full of Supreme Court goodness. We've got orders! Opinions! Dissents! Concurrences in denial! The question of whether or not Justice Breyer has become a death penalty abolitionist! With all of that, we tie up the last sitting and look forward to the next. There's a full argument calendar ahead, so we preview two cases that piqued our interests: Microsoft Corp. v. Baker (aka one of the "Scalia Three") and City of Los Angeles v. Mendez. Whether you're more interested in class action suits about X-Boxes or complicated cases arising from officer-involved shootings, it's going to be a week full of lofty rhetoric. We'll get you ready for it.
