Also of note, it appears that the Court is considering rehearing Kennedy v. Louisiana. SCOTUSBlog says (in part):
The Supreme Court on Monday called for new legal briefs on possible rehearing — and, maybe, revision — of its ruling striking down the death penalty for the crime of child rape. In an order in Kennedy v. Louisiana (found here), the Court sought briefs from lawyers for both sides in the case, as well as from the federal government. The new briefing in 07-343 is to be completed by Sept. 24 — in advance of the Court’s first Conference of the new Term, on Monday, Sept. 29.
We'll see what happens. It would be interesting for the Court to rehear a case less than six months after it was decided. Of course, the result could be the oppopsite that those opposed to Kennedy desire; if the decision is upheld by a majority, the precedent only becomes stronger. For years abortion opponents have been foiled by having cases brought before the Court, only to have the right to an abortion more entrenched (though usually in a more refined form). Once again, we'll see.
