[ Change in orders release (UPDATED)
UPDATE 12:45 pm. The new early release procedure will be followed on all days when a regular Order List is due to be released, and not just on days when the Court will be sitting. With that policy going into effect tomorrow, presumably that means that, if there are grants out of today’s Conference, they will be made available at 9:30 am Tuesday. Otherwise, all orders coming out of that Conference will be released next Monday at 9:30 am.
In the Supreme Court’s new Term, soon to open, the Justices will follow a new routine in the release of orders when the Court is sitting. On those days, the list of orders will be made public at 9:30 a.m., rather than 10 a.m., the custom for many years. The Court announced the change in a news release Monday morning; it can be read here.
The Court explained the switch by saying that, on days when the Justices take to the bench, the release of the orders a half-hour earlier will give the public, the press, and attorneys more chance to review the Court’s actions before the public sitting begins.
The change will take effect tomorrow morning.
The Court’s Term formally begins next Monday, when oral arguments resume. The Court is meeting in a private Conference this morning to decide which new cases, if any, will be granted for review in the new Term. The Court has released its calendars for oral argument for the October, November, and December sittings. ]

Beginning with October Term 2012, the regularly scheduled Order Lists of the Supreme Court of the United States will be released by the Court at 9:30 a.m. rather than at 10 a.m. as had been the previous practice. On days when the Court is in session, the change will provide members of the Supreme Court Bar, the public, and the media an opportunity to review Order Lists before the Court sits at 10 a.m.
Regularly scheduled Order Lists are typically issued on each Monday that the Court sits. On occasion, regularly scheduled Order Lists are issued on days that the Court is not sitting. The issuance of such a list is announced in advance. Miscellaneous orders may be issued in individual cases at any time. Scheduled Order Lists will continue to be posted on the Court’s Website (http://www.supremecourt.gov/orders/orders.aspx) immediately following their release by the Court. Miscellaneous orders will continue to be posted on the Website the day of issuance or the next day in the instance of some emergency applications.
The change in practice will go into effect on Tuesday, September 25, 2012.
This week at the Court
On Monday, the Court meets for the “Long Conference” to consider petitions on the summer lists. Our list of “Petitions to watch” for that Conference is available in three installments (here, here, and here). We expect the Court to issue grants from its Conference on Tuesday morning and will report on those grants and any other actions by the Court as soon as possible.
