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.

Stroud v. McIntosh
Petition for certiorari denied on January 13, 2014
Issue: Whether, under the principles of Lapides v. Board of Regents of University System of Georgia a State waives its sovereign immunity when it voluntarily invokes federal jurisdiction by removing a case to federal court, regardless of whether the State has relinquished that immunity in its own courts.
