A minute-by-minute account from inside the Supreme Court

The ABA Journal has just posted an absolutely fascinating account of the events that took place inside the U.S. Supreme Court as the court announced its decision on the Affordable Care Act. Mark Walsh writes:

10:07 a.m. Roberts says: "I have the opinion to announce in Number 11-393, National Federation of Independent Business [v.] Sebelius, and related cases." If audience members could possibly perk up any more in their seats, they did.

It is at this moment that copies of the full opinion are handed out downstairs in the court's press room, and reporters and anyone else who could access it were free to try to discern the court's ruling.

Inside the courtroom, however, the full revelation of the court's ruling will take quite a few minutes to unfold.
