The Supreme Court of the United States adjourns for the summer on June 30 and they have announced just three remaining days for the release of decisions: June 15, June 22 and June 29. The last decision day or two are usually reserved for the biggest decisions, this year King v. Burwell (an important ObamaCare case) and Obergefell v. Hodges (Gay Marriage).
We have our eyes fixed intently on two decisions, that are less prominent than those two, as they impact cases our firm has pending: City of Los Angeles v. Patel, about whether the City of Los Angeles can inspect a hotel register without a search warrant, and Reed v. Town of Gilbert, Arizona. The Los Angeles case directly impacts our pending litigation against the City of Portsmouth, Ohio over its housing inspection ordinance and the Town of Gilbert case deals with issues nearly identical to those argued by us in Frank Wagner v. City of Garfield Heights, which we presently have pending on appeal before the U.S. Supreme Court.
Because these decisions are less high-profile than some others, we expect they could be released this coming Monday, the 15th.
