The listing is under the notable petitions section of the SCOTUS blog, and includes links to filed background documents (5th Circuit opinion; Petition for certiorari; Amicus brief of Texas State Senator Rodney Ellis et al; and Amicus brief of AAIDD and ARC. The case is docket number 10-37. I've only had time to skim a few pages but this Texas case appears to have the potential to raise a number of critical Atkin's issues---and provide SCOTUS with the chance to address some of the mess left post-Atkins.
Will monitor as close as possible. Would appreciate others sending me FYI's as they learn and hear more.
