There are two great columns over at Slate about Hiibel v. Sixth Judicial District Court of Nevada, one of the more interesting cases before the Supreme Court this term. The first is Dahlia Lithwick’s wrap up of the arguments before the Court, and as always, provides a look at the blow-by-blow that took place in oral arguments. The second article is Barbara Babcock’s view of the threat posed by a ruling that upholds Nevada’s law (while lamenting Dudley Hiibel’s role as an unexpected defender of civil rights). Both are worth a read.
