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.

Holding: A federal immigration statute bars judicial review of certain immigration decisions left to the discretion of the Attorney General by statute. In this case, the Court held that whether to reopen administrative proceedings in an immigration case is not one of those discretionary decisions shielded from judicial review.
