Walking the Line

As promised yesterday, here's the audio from the Supreme Court oral argument on the New Hampshire parental notification case. I have not yet had the chance to listen to the whole thing, but from press accounts (WaPo, NYTimes, LATimes) it sounds like the justices, led by their new chief, were close to agreeing on a narrowed interpretation of the law which would remove the constitutional objections to it and preserve emergency health exceptions. We won't know for sure until the decision is released, of course (which could be months away, and might be complicated further by the Alito confirmation), but so far it looks promising.
