There are no new cert. grants this morning. There is, however, a summary disposition in the case Bobby v. Van Hook (09-144), which was granted and reversed. The Court also invited the Solicitor General to submit a brief expressing the view of the United States in Staub v. Proctor Hospital, details of which are below. The full order list is here.
(UPDATE: For anyone who had trouble with the links below before, they are now working.)
Title: Staub v. Proctor Hospital
Issue: In what circumstances may an employer be held liable based on the unlawful intent of officials who caused or influenced but did not make the ultimate employment decision?
