Today was the last day of the Supreme Court term. It came out wrong on the Missouri playground church-state case, which I have not read yet. I think the big news is a partial stay of Trump's tavel ban.
It granted suit in the colorado gay cake case. I'll be headed out to Colorado next month to invesigate further. As a gay guy who has worked at bakeries, I support the bakers.
It granted cert in a case about a whitleblower under Dodd-Frank.

It turned down a california case, Peralta, about the right to bear arms. I'm trying to find Gorsuch's dissent.

Ah, he only joined Thomas's dissent:
Thomas and Gorsuch seem like a good team.

For those of us who work in marbled halls, guarded constantly by a vigilant and dedicated police force, the guarantees of the Second Amendment might seem antiquated and superfluous. But the Framers made a clear choice: They reserved to all Americans the right to bear arms for self-defense. I do not think we should stand by idly while a State denies its citizens that right, particularly when their very lives may depend on it. -Thomas.
