Supreme Court Extends Heller to the States

While most of the Supreme Court buzz may be focused on Supreme Court Nominee, Elena Kagan’s confirmation hearings which started today – the current justices are making headlines of their own, handing down a number of landmark decisions.

Already issued this morning was the Court’s decision in McDonald v. Chicago (08-1521), a Second Amendment case that we blogged about earlier this year.  As expected, the Court (5-4), decided to extend Heller’s holding to the states. Read the full 214-page decision, here.

And check the Fastcase Blog later today for copies of other Supreme Court decisions.
