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.

Mayo v. Board of Education of Prince George’s County
Petition for certiorari denied on January 13, 2014
Issue: Whether the requirement that all defendants in a state court action subject to removal must either join in a
timely notice of removal or consent to removal the consent is satisfied by a mere
representation from counsel for the removing defendant
that all codefendants consent to removal
(the rule in the Fourth, Sixth and Ninth Circuits)
or must each codefendant file a timely written
statement of consent with the court (the rule in the
Fifth, Seventh and Eighth Circuits).
