Supreme Court to Review Solomon Amendment Case: The Supreme Court has granted certiorari to review the Third Circuit's decision striking down the Solomon Amendment.

I don't think it will be close, either: maybe 9-0, with a concurrence or two. But of course these things are tough to predict.Tough enough to make anyone want to bet on the other side? I think not.
