Late last night, SCOTUSblog posted a list of roundups and discussions about the upcoming Supreme Court term. Probably can't make it through all of them.
But I was able to check out the one written one written by Pamela Harris at the Georgetown Law Center Supreme Court Institute. There's also an update. Most relevant to stuff around here, on pages 35-39, she discusses the four habeas cases to be heard this term: McDaniel, Wood, Beard and Smith (or should I refer to it as Spisak, I have seen it both ways).
On pages 11-14, the update gives a brief discussion of the new cert. grant in Holland, Thompson and Smith (or should I just call these the Berghius cases). I have previously mentioned those cases here and here. I haven't yet given too much analysis to those cases. I'll get something up on them before the argument dates (making a lot of promises around here).
All in all, it looks to be a pretty active term in habeasland for the Supreme Court.
