Early Coverage of Supreme Court Development

Both MarketWatch and The BLT: The Blog of Legal Times have covered the Supreme Court's announcement this morning that it will review the Second Circuit's decision to throw out the freelance copyright class action settlement on jurisdictional grounds.

See the links below. The BLT piece, by veteran legal journalist Tony Mauro, is the stronger of the two, correctly noting:

The high court, in granting review, re-worded the question presented to encompass only whether 17 U.S.C. 411(a) restricts "the subject matter jurisdiction of the federal courts over copyright infringement actions." The case will be argued in the fall.
