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.

Michigan Workers’ Compensation Agency v. Ace American Insurance Co.

Petition for certiorari denied on June 25, 2012
Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
11-1229 2d Cir. N/A N/A N/A N/A OT 2011

Issue: (1) Whether a bankruptcy court’s exercise of its in rem jurisdiction categorically abrogates state sovereign immunity, regardless of the governmental unit’s role in the particular bankruptcy proceeding; and (2) whether the Bankruptcy Code’s abrogation of sovereign immunity extends to a state-law statutory claim that does not involve the discharged debtor.
