McCutcheon Decision — When?

Someone emailed me to ask when The Supreme Court might rule in the McCutcheon case.  Of course, no one knows.

However, we can guess.

Of the eleven cases argued last October, seven have been resolved, though no major cases have been decided during this term.

If it takes as long as Citizens United, that would be 134 days, or Wednesday, February 19.

If it takes as long as the average decision for cases argued in October 2012, that would be 129 days, or Friday, February 14.  But the Court usually issues opinions earlier in the week, so maybe we could learn the outcome February 12.
