UPDATE: I just noticed that the court is holding a pre-release lockup to brief journalists on the issues that arose during the case. While this is by no means unprecedented – according to my gmail archives, it’s been done on two earlier occasions this year – it does suggest that the court – or at least, its media relations specialists – expect that it may be a particularly newsworthy ruling.
