Following yesterday’s dismissal of Visa v. Osborn and Visa v. Stoumbos, the Supreme Court today issued a new calendar for its December sitting, which begins on November 28. The two Visa cases, which had been consolidated for one hour of oral arguments, had been scheduled for argument on Wednesday, December 7 — the only argument that day. The justices will still hear oral arguments on December 7, however: the oral argument in Czyzewski v. Jevic Holding Corp., a bankruptcy case that was originally scheduled for November 28, has been moved to December 7.
The move means that five of the six days of the December sitting will have just one oral argument; there are two oral arguments — in the redistricting cases Bethune-Hill v. Virginia State Board of Elections and McCrory v. Harris — scheduled for Monday, December 5.
