07-6522SIBLEY, MONTGOMERY B. V. BREYER, JUSTICE, USSC, ET AL.
Because the Court lacks a quorum, 28 U.S.C. §1, and since
a majority of the qualified Justices are of the opinion that the
case cannot be heard and determined at the next Term of the
Court, the judgment is affirmed under 28 U.S.C. §2109, which
provides that under these circumstances the Court shall enter
its order affirming the judgment of the court from which the
case was brought for review with the same effect as upon
affirmance by an equally divided Court. Justice Stevens,
Justice Scalia, Justice Kennedy, Justice Souter, Justice Thomas,
Justice Ginsburg, and Justice Breyer took no part in the
