Last year the Court released the photo on September 29, which was the Tuesday before the First Monday. Today is the Tuesday before the First Monday. Although Sotomayor had her investiture ceremony on 9/8/09, and Kagan will have her investiture ceremony this Friday, on 10/1/10.
Surely they will take the photograph before Friday? Come on SCOTUS. Get your act together! Someone needs to design the new FantasySCOTUS graphic for the start of the October 2010 season (coming really soon). JPS out! EK in!
