So far the Supreme Court has issued one verdict already:


[Updated at 10:01 a.m. ET] We have a ruling on the juvenile justice case, which involves the question of whether a 14-year-old can be sentenced to life without the change for parole, Bill Mears reports. It involved two kids, aged 14. In both cases the court has reversed the earlier ruling, ruling in favor of the underage children, saying they should have a chance to argue for for parole someday. It was a 6-3 ruling.


Health care ruling may be coming in shortly......

[Updated at 10:07 a.m. ET] One case down. But the big question still remains:


Seems everyone is waiting for the big decision.

[Updated at 10:08 a.m. ET] The court has overthrown a Montana state ruling on state elections, which essentially means it is upholding Citizens United, and ruling that Supreme Court case applies to state elections as well. The court will not hear oral arguments on the case.


Still no word on the big one.

[Updated at 10:15 a.m. ET] We now have a ruling in the Arizona immigration case law. The law was upheld in parts and struck down in others. We are now reading to see which parts have been upheld and which parts have been struck down by the Supreme Court. Stay tuned.


Interesting verdict on a very controversial law. Updates will be provided as they come in. No word yet on which have part are upheld or struck down.

[Updated at 10:18 a.m. ET] The Supreme Court has issued 5-3 decision in favor of U.S. government, with Justice Kennedy saying that the government has significant power to regulate immigration and while Arizona may have signifacnt frustrations they may not have policies that undermine federal law. This is a win for the federal government and a loss for Arizona.


Chalk up a loss for state rights. Once again the government plays big brother.

Doesn't look like a ruling today on health care. Seems as though they love to torture the country.

Just keep diminishing those state rights. This is the direction we're going. Sooner or later the states are going to have had enough. EDIT TO ADD: Where is the line drawn? As a nation do we have a definitive line that the Federal Government can't cross any more. Is there a consensus on this? This is what the states need to start discussing.

Basically saying we know it's broken, but you aren't allowed to try and fix it.

[Updated at 10:26 a.m. ET] The Court ruled largely in favor of the U.S. government, striking down three parts of the Arizona immigration law, but the Court did uphold one the most notorious provisions: A requirement that local police officers check a person's immigration status while enforcing other laws if "reasonable suspicion" exists that the person is in the United States illegally. The question now is can that single provision stand on its own, or does the court action mean Arizona has to go back to the drawing board on their immigration law.


Interesting they kept one of the more controversial parts of the law.

Over the decades it seems we have lost the sense of state pride and gained national pride. A long time ago you would say I am from Michigan, etc. When the civil war occurred many people went with the way their state felt about the issues.

It's a shame to see that even the Scotus is as ignorant of states rights as the general public....the educational system of revisionist history and indoctrination is really taking hold....soon they will burn the books and founding docs so all proof will be gone.


I think it's more important than ever that all concerned Americans keep copies of the constitution, federalist papers etc in a safe place in their homes... we are going to need them.

This ruling effectively told states they do not have the authority to enforce federal law. I hope that states acknowledge this and stop wasting resources on commissions of federal crimes.

Arizona was not writing their own laws on how or who can immigrate, thus not in violation of the constitution.
