The petitions of the day are:

Morgan v. Swanson

Docket: 11-804
Issue(s): (1) Whether it is clearly established that private non-curricular student speech may not be discriminated against solely on the basis of its religious viewpoint; and (2) whether, at a bare minimum, it is clearly established that private non-curricular student speech that takes place outside of the school and after school hours may not be discriminated against solely on the basis of its religious viewpoint.

Certiorari stage documents:

Swanson v. Morgan

Docket: 11-941
Issue(s): Whether, in this qualified immunity appeal from a motion to dismiss, the Fifth Circuit's discussion of the merits of the underlying constitutional issues should be vacated because the Fifth Circuit correctly held that the law was not clearly established, the parties do not have a continuing interest in the legal issues at stake, and the Fifth Circuit's discussion of the constitutional issue constitutes an impermissible advisory opinion.
