The term is up, and I have let sufficient time pass to allow everyone else in the blogosphere to comment about it. To me the following were the biggest disappointments: the remedies portion of U.S. v. Booker, No. 04-104 (Jan. 12, 2005); Kelo v. City of New London, No. 04-108 (June 23, 2005) (see our previous posts here and here); and Castle Rock v. Gonzales, No. 04-278 (June 27, 2005) (see our post It was "Poor Joshua!" then and will it now be "Poor Rebecca, Katheryn, Leslie and Jessica"?
And on the question of who will replace Justice O'Connor, I only hope that it is someone who will be an additional vote to undo the Booker remedial opinion, and who will also vote to undo Harris and Almendarez-Torres, but I will not hold my breath waiting.
