Williams affirmed without majority opinion
Scotusblog reports that Williams was affirmed 5t-4, with Justice Alito writing for four justices (the Melendez-Diaz and Bullcoming dissenters), Justice Thomas concurring in the result, and the others dissenting. That's all I know for now; I haven't seen the opinions. I'll post them soon, and offer some comments, probably today, maybe tomorrow. I also know that the Court did not grant the petition for certiorari in Rose -- but I haven't seen the order list yet, so I don't know for sure whether it was denied.
