It turns out yesterday wasn't really the last day of the session. Today was.
The court set aside a death penalty, decided that it lacked a quorum to hear one case,
freed a corrupt southern governor, and sent the nunchucks case back in light of McDonald.

Also sent back to a lower court was Maloney v. Rice (08-1592), a case in which Justice Sonia Sotomayor, when she was a member of the Second Circuit, had also ruled that the Second Amendment does not apply to state and local government levels. The Maloney case did not involve guns, but rather tested a New York state law that bans personal possession of a martial arts device — a nunchaku — that also can be used as a weapon. Justice Sotomayor did not take part in the Maloney order Tuesday.
