One thing about being a blogging lawprof is that if a new Supreme Court case comes out and you let four hours pass without blogging about it, you seem to have missed the boat entirely. I was teaching my two-hour Conlaw class this morning and saw, during my ten minute break, that the Court had decided the long-awaited Takings Clause case. Since then, I've finished my class, answered my email, relocated to home, gotten some lunch, and read a few more pages of the morning newspaper I started reading at 6 a.m.
So is it too late to talk about the new case? Has everyone already said everything that can be said? The world whooshes by so quickly these days.
