At SCOTUSblog, University of San Diego law prof Gail Heriot has a rich explanation of Schuette v. Coalition to Defend Affirmative Action, to be argued next month before the U.S. Supreme Court. Its opening is unambiguous:
If you are tired of Court watchers who like to hedge their bets, you might appreciate this: I predict a reversal here.
That is not an remarkable conclusion. But Heriot's piece points to what many others have concluded -- that what will be important in Schuette is not what the outcome is, but the reasoning.
