Unusual Lineup in Petrella v. Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, Inc.

May 19th, 2014

Now that is an odd lineup inĀ Petrella v. Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, Inc..

For the majority, Justice Scalia assigned the opinion to RBG, who also wrote for Thomas, Alito, Sotomayor, and Kagan. Breyer dissted joined by the Chief and Kennedy. I don’t recall seeing that one. And Nino assigning an opinion to RBG is fairly rare also.
