I think the record was 20 or so which is roughly the equivalent of 5 months. I think Norman will happen this term or won't happen at all.
It will happen this term or not at all. Only an extraordinary event could push it to October 2018, such as another Justice dying and leaving a 4-4 ideological split, which is why Texas v. United States was held for rehearing. 20 realists would mean they're crafting a per curiam order. That's an obscene amount of relists. That wouldn't happen in this case because of its importance, the Court would benefit from oral argument.

But this once again begs the question...can we trust Kennedy? Or is he perhaps gonna quit during the Christmas recess?
