Posted in Anticipation, Kagan Nomination, Supreme Court Side Walk by Mike Sacks on June 25, 2010

Monday’s going to be a doozy.  Last day of the term.  Stevens’s last day ever.  Decisions on Guns and God (Gays was decided yesterday), as well as a bit of man v. machine and what may be the financial industry’s own Citizens United.

But that’s not all!

About two hours after the Court lets out for its summer recess, the Senate starts its preseason tryouts with Elena Kagan.

I plan on being in the Courtroom and the hearing room.  And my liveblogging the latter will hopefully be made more colorful by my sleepless Sunday night on the Supreme Court Side Walk.

That’s right: I will be conducting a my own final F1@1F campout for the term.  I suspect it will be a fun one, as the Guns and God oral arguments had the earliest and most enthusiastic lines of the term – and Monday’s certainty of those decisions and the drastically warmer weather (plus the prospect of a stately nonagenarian screaming, “I’m Outta Here!” to a captive audience, tossing reams of paper into the air in a sign of aged defiance) point to a big turnout.

I’d love to see some F1@1F readers out there, too.  If you’re planning on coming to the sidewalk, please do let me know.

    I’m really thinking about going. I do realize my noncommittal attitude suggests a lack of enthusiasm for camping out all night, but I definitely wouldn’t rule it out. Do you really think you’d need to get there before 6am to get in? Of course, posing that question to you is a bit silly–insulting even–considering your integrity as THE first one at First Street; please accept my humble apology if said query offends.

    So pumped for CLS. I am getting in early and parking in front of a liveblog. Wish I could make it to the campout; watch out for the sprinklers.

    How would one of the first at One First relieve himself of the excesses of nature, so to speak, during the early morning hours?
