In an extremely rare move, the Supreme Court has postponed the first oral argument scheduled for its new term Monday, South Carolina v. North Carolina. An announcement from the Court came Sunday night. The official reason given was that "family illness" has left Eric Miller, assistant to the U.S. Solicitor General, unable to argue in the case. The case is an important dispute over which parties are entitled to intervene in so-called "original jurisdiction" cases.
