2006 term per curiam opinions of the Supreme Court of the United States

2006 term per curiam opinions of the Supreme Court of the United States

The Supreme Court of the United States handed down eight "per curiam" opinions during its 2006 term, which began on October 2, 2006 and concluded September 30, 2007. [Descriptions of two decisions have been omitted. "Toledo-Flores v. United States", 549 U.S. 69 (2006) is a one-line dismissal of "certiorari" as improvidently granted. In "Claiborne v. United States", 550 U.S. ___ (2007), the Court vacated the lower court's judgment as moot, upon being notified that the petitioner had died.]

Because "per curiam" decisions are issued from the Court as an institution, these opinions all lack the attribution of authorship or joining votes to specific justices. All justices on the Court at the time the decision was handed down are assumed to have participated and concurred unless otherwise noted.
