Waiting for Ricci...

Will the Supreme Court's announcement of its decision (in about an hour) in Ricci v. DeStefano disappoint both supporters and critics of of the Second Circuit's decision in that case? It's not impossible: the Supreme Court's opinion may consist of one or two lines -- announcing, e.g., a summary remand.

N.B. For what it's worth: I remain a strong supporter of Judge Sotomayor. Her perspective would be good for the Court. I would also emphasize that her experience includes experience as a prosecutor and as a commercial litigator. She has worked (in that hackneyed but apt phrase) in the trenches. This gives her an understanding of "procedure in action" that the other Justices (with all due respect) lack.
