  • Major Cases

    • Trump v. Hawaii
      (1) Whether respondents' challenge to the temporary suspension of entry of aliens abroad under Section 2(c) of Executive Order No. 13,780 is justiciable; (2) whether Section 2(c)'s temporary suspension of entry violates the Establishment Clause; (3) whether the global injunction, which rests on alleged injury to a single individual plaintiff, is impermissibly overbroad; and (4) whether the challenges to Section 2(c) became moot on June 14, 2017.
    • Gill v. Whitford
      (1) Whether the district court violated Vieth v. Jubelirer when it held that it had the authority to entertain a statewide challenge to Wisconsin's redistricting plan, instead of requiring a district-by-district analysis; (2) whether the district court violated Vieth when it held that Wisconsin's redistricting plan was an impermissible partisan gerrymander, even though it was undisputed that the plan complies with traditional redistricting principles; (3) whether the district court violated Vieth by adopting a watered-down version of the partisan-gerrymandering test employed by the plurality in Davis v. Bandemer; (4) whether the defendants are entitled, at a minimum, to present additional evidence showing that they would have prevailed under the district court's test, which the court announced only after the record had closed; and (5) whether partisan-gerrymandering claims are justiciable.
    • Carpenter v. United States

      Conference of October 27, 2017
    • Opalinski v. Robert Half International, Inc. Whether, where an arbitration agreement does not expressly refer to class arbitration, the determination of whether class arbitration is permitted by the agreement is a question of arbitrability for the court to decide or a question of interpretation and procedure for the arbitrator to decide.
    • S.S. v. Colorado River Indian Tribes (1) Whether the Indian Child Welfare Act, 25 U.S.C. §§ 1912(d) and 1912(f), applies in a private severance action initiated by one birth parent against the other birth parent of an Indian child; and (2) whether, if the sections apply in such an action, this de jure discrimination and separate-and-substandard treatment of Indian children violate the due process and equal protection guarantees of the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments.
    • Scott v. Maryland State Department of Labor Whether, under Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 4(m), a district court has discretion to extend the time for service of process even without a showing of good cause, as the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 2d, 3d, 5th, 7th, 8th, 9th, 10th, 11th, and D.C. Circuits have held, and as the Supreme Court has interpreted, or whether the district court lacks such discretion, as the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit has squarely held and as the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit has repeatedly suggested.
