Editor's Note :

In previous years, the Court released orders the morning after the Court’s “Long Conference.” It has not done so this year. Beginning last Term, the Court consistently considered petitions at least two times before granting certiorari. To the extent that practice continues -- and there is no affirmative evidence the Court intends to drop it -- we would not expect orders granting certiorari today.

Issue: (1) Whether a court can refuse to enforce a sister state’s judgment because it rests on a penal cause of action or whether it must enforce that judgment; and (2) if a court may decline enforcement consistent with full faith and credit, whether awards for attorney’s fees and costs, equitable disgorgement, and coercive per diem and statutory liquidated damages are penal for purposes of the exception.
