As noted in Part One of this series, the Supreme Court has not yet announced its December argument schedule. However, they have eleven cases that they have accepted for review and six argument dates in December. While it is possible that the Supreme Court might postpone some of these cases to January, there are enough available argument slots in December to hear all of the cases currently on the argument docket.
Looking at the cases accepted, there are the three cases from last January that have been postponed to December (discussed more below). In addition from the cases accepted in June, there are two re-districting cases, an intellectual property case, a bankruptcy case, a capital punishment case, an anti-trust case involving credit cards, an immigration case, and a federal criminal case. The contentiousness of these eleven cases might result in some of these cases being pushed even further back in the hope that a ninth justice might arrive this term.
