It's the height of absurdity that the SCOTUS plays this cat-and-mouse game with their decisions. All of their decisions were arrived at over a month ago.
I understand that they need some time to write up their opinions, but this ridiculous drip, drip, drip of decisions smacks more of the SCOTUS self-aggrandizing than of careful, deliberative justice. They should announce these decisions as soon as they have been made, followed in a few days by their written opinions.
It's bad for our economy and our nation to be forced into playing these inane guessing games over what the Court may or may not have decided a month prior.

Agreed. I’ve argued before them and I HATE that. It’s not a game and, often, they act like it is. I hate the “we are royalty” feeling SCOTUS projects.

Perhaps, but Scalia's dissent was obviously, at the least, revised in the last 10 days as he makes direct reference to Obama's announcement that he will not enforce the law on those brought here as children.
Quote of the day: Scalia - "...the Federal Government must live with the inconvenient fact that it is a Union of independent States, who have their own sovereign powers."
