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.

Stocker v. United States
Petition for certiorari denied on December 16, 2013
Issue: Whether a taxpayer may prove the timely filing of a tax refund claim through evidence other than an actual postmarked envelope or a registered or certified mail receipt, as the Third, Eighth, Ninth, and Tenth Circuits and the Tax Court have held, or whether the only evidence admissible to establish timely filing is the envelope or receipt itself, as the First, Second, and Sixth Circuits have held.
