No Divided Argument in Carcieri v. Kempthorne

The Supreme Court released its other orders from last Monday’s long conference.

The motion of petitioners Donald L. Carcieri, Governor of Rhode Island, and the State of Rhode Island for divided argument is denied. The motion of petitioner Town of Charlestown for divided argument is denied. The motion of Narragansett Indian Tribe for leave to participate in oral argument as amicus curiae and for divided argument is denied.

So I assume the State will let Ted Olson on behalf of the governor argue the case against Ed Kneedler on the government’s side.

Here are the cert denials:
