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.

Missouri ex rel. KCP&L Greater Missouri Operations Co. v. Missouri Public Service Commission

Petition for certiorari denied on June 30, 2014
Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
13-787 Mo. N/A N/A N/A N/A OT 2013

Issue: Whether the filed rate doctrine and Supremacy Clause permit a state public service commission to “trap” federally approved costs with a utility by recognizing the prudency of obtaining electric power from a plant in another state, but then barring the utility from recovering the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission-approved transmission costs of importing that power. CVSG: 03/10/2014.
