Suprem Court Oral Argument Is Wednesday, March 21, 2012

Here is the relevant portion of the just released hearings scheduling order:

. . .No. 11–262. Virgil D. “Gus” Reichle, Jr., et al. v. Steven Howards.
Certiorari to the C. A. 10th Circuit.

For petitioner: Sean R. Gallagher, Denver, Colo.; and Sri Srinivasan, Principal Deputy Solicitor General, Department of Justice, Washington, D. C. (for United States, as amicus curiae.)

For respondent: David A. Lane, Denver, Colo.
(One hour for argument.). . . .

Soon we will know whether Mr. Cheney's orders were unconstitutional, insofar as they attempted to punish -- with retaliatory arrest/detention -- otherwise protected political speech (speech which did not advocate violence, or the overthrow of the government), speech uttered to an elected political official, during the official's public appearance, in a public place.
