Monday status conference

We know everyone is already thinking about the turkey and football to come on Thursday (despite our Washington location, DC Dicta is a Lions fan, so for us Turkey Day is always football day), but there is still a bit of work to be done first:

The Supreme Court will conference tomorrow, and some cert grants could be forthcoming, including an eagerly-awaited decision on whether the Court will consider the constitutionality of Washington DC’s handgun ban. Across the street, the House is not in session this week, and the Senate has only a pro forma session on tomorrow’s schedule.
