"A court ritual worth watching: Sure, Sotomayor's confirmation hearing will have its share of senatorial grandstanding and the requisite bloviating; But don't let this keep you away." Tony Mauro has this op-ed today in USA Today.

And online at The Christian Science Monitor, law professor Paul Litton has an op-ed entitled "Sotomayor would have to make value judgments: 'Follow the law!' does not answer questions on gay marriage, abortion, and life imprisonment for juveniles."

Available online from National Public Radio: Yesterday's broadcast of "All Things Considered" contained an audio segment entitled "Sotomayor Seen As Moderate On Criminal Justice" featuring law professors Doug Berman and Jonathan Adler.

Monday's broadcast of "Talk of the Nation" contained an audio segment entitled "What Have We Learned About Sotomayor?" featuring David G. Savage of The Los Angeles Times.

And today's broadcast of "Morning Edition" contained an audio segment entitled "Former FBI Director Freeh To Endorse Sotomayor" featuring Nina Totenberg.

RealPlayer is required to launch these audio segments.

"The Place of Women on the Court": Emily Bazelon will have this article in Sunday's issue of The New York Times Magazine.

"Judges strike broad ban on Washington's Plan B rules": The Associated Press has a report that begins, "Federal appeals judges say a lower court was wrong when it blocked Washington state's rules mandating the sale of 'morning-after' birth control pills."

It's a gardening implement, not slang for "prostitute": The Associated Press has a report headlined "It's not slang! Nev. court permits 'HOE' license" that begins, "A Las Vegas man can take a jolly ride around town now that he's won a courtroom battle with the Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles to keep his personalized 'HOE' license plate."

The Supreme Court of Nevada apparently has not yet posted this ruling online at its web site.

Update: A reader emails:

I write to inform you that the Supreme Court of Nevada opinion referenced in your 5:10 post is available at the Nevada ACLU's website at this link.

The link is appended to a blog post, which appears here.

I should also say that I'm disappointed that the Nevada court did not cite as persuasive authority the dictum in Judge Terence Evans's opinion in USA v. Murphy, 406 F.3d 857 (7th Cir. 2005), which you highlighted about 4 years ago and which would seem to be directly on point

I thank this reader for sending along a link to today's Nevada Supreme Court ruling.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit makes oral arguments available online via this web page.
