|Russ - When I read that Roberts dissented, I wracked my brain trying to guess who defected, with no luck. (see edit)|

Well, nobody defected. Justice Gorsuch did not participate in the adjudication: the tally was 5-3, the four progressives + Kennedy.
The abominable decision would still have been made even had he participated, but the mystery of a possible "defection" is thus explained.
5-3, in an opinion by Justice Kennedy on June 23, 2017. Chief Justice
Roberts filed a dissenting opinion, in which Justices Thomas and Alito
joined. Justice Thomas filed a dissenting opinion. Justice Gorsuch took
no part in the consideration or decision of the case.
As I posted below, we need Buzzy and Kennedy GONE before the 2018 elections.
LIBERTY HAS NO EXPIRATION DATEDemocrats wouldn't buy a clue if it was government subsidized.
