No SCOTUS decisions on marriage or Obamacare today

U.S. Supreme CourtLooks like we’re going to have to wait a few days for the outcome of two blockbuster cases before the U.S. Supreme Court. Decisions in four cases were announced this morning, but no SCOTUS decision in the marriage case (Obergefell v. Hodges), which could once and for all settle the marriage issue for all the states, or the Obamacare case (King v. Burwell), which threatens to gut the Affordable Care Act.  

Among the four decisions announced today, one carries bad news for some of those swindled by Bernie Madoff. In another, Justice Kagan quoted Stan Lee in a decision involving Spiderman. Beat that.

With only a few days left before the end of the Court’s term (end of June), it is quite possible that the Court will announce Obergefell and Burwell last. Let’s call it their big finale.

There were 47,000 on SCOTUSblog this morning, which is a lot but not a record. That record is a million, for the first ACA decision.
