Well, as my Constitutional Law students will tell you, I called the result, the vote, and the identity of the dissenter. What was my basis? I recalled the Court’s ruling last year in U.S. v. Stevens (the ‘crush’ video case), read Alito’s dissent therein, and knew that neither Kennedy nor Scalia (with decent Free Speech records, including Scalia’s almost twenty-year old ruling in R.A.V.) would not make a contrary ruling. Roberts was an unknown; however, his position in Stevens also dictated my ‘bet’ on his vote in Phelps.
