For anyone that still cares . . .

The first death penalty case to be decided since Roberts took the bench (more commonly known in our class as my mom's case) came down today, 5-4 in favor of reinstating the death sentence. Link to the opinion: http://a257.g.akamaitech.net/7/257/2422/11jan20061050/www.supremecourtus.gov/opinions/05pdf/04-980.pdf

Don't know what this says about future DP cases, this issue was really technical, but can't be a great sign.
