The Supreme Court on Tuesday morning issued no signed opinions and granted review in no new cases, but still made news on issues ranging from the Great Lakes dispute over the invasion of Asian carp to the requirement that jury voir dire proceedings be open to the public.

The Court also kept alive the long-running appeal of Mumia Abu-Jamal, the Philadelphia man convicted of killing a police officer. The Court sent his case back to the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, instructing it to consider his appeal in light of the high court’s recent ruling in Smith v. Spisak. In this story last fall, colleague Shannon Duffy from The Legal Intelligencer in Philadelphia explained the parallels between the Abu-Jamal and Spisak cases.
