SCOTUS Saturday: Three strikes, and still waiting.

Two items of newsworthiness this week at the SCOTUS.

First is a unanimous decision in Lomax v. Ortiz-Marquez with regards to the “three strikes” rule, where prisoners cannot file in forma pauperis (which basically means they are too poor to pay for their own court costs and attorneys) if they have had more than three suits dismissed for bothering the courts with frivolous matters. Specifically, the ruling handles whether or not a a dismissal without prejudice for failure to state a claim counts as a “strike.” It does. Justice Kagan wrote the decision.

Second are the continuing issues of qualified immunity and some second amendment cases on which we are still awaiting decisions.

Monday at 10 AM should see one or more opinions. As usual, there is no telling what will be released.
