Announcement of opinions for Thursday, May 30 (complete)


On Thursday, May 30, we live blogged as the court released opinions in three cases from the current term.

  • The justices ruled unanimously in Cantero v. Bank of America, N. A., holding that the lower court did not apply the standard for determining when state laws that regulate national banks are preempted “in a manner consistent with Dodd-Frank and Barnett Bank.”
  • In National Rifle Association of America v. Vullo, the court ruled that allegations that the head of the NY Department of Financial Services violated the free speech rights of the NRA when she allegedly pressured entities that did business with the group to cut ties with the NRA “if true, state a First Amendment claim.” On remand, the court says, the 2nd Circuit “is free to reconsider whether Vullo is entitled to qualified immunity.”
  • The court ruled 6-3 in Thornell v. Jones that Danny Lee Jones’s Sixth Amendment right to counsel was not violated during the sentencing phase of his capital trial in Arizona.
