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 -- so we are again doubtful that certiorari will be granted in any cases today.

T.W. v. United States

Petition for certiorari denied on May 13, 2013
Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
12-853 7th Cir. N/A N/A N/A N/A OT 2012

Issue: Whether the required records doctrine can be invoked to “override” or “supersede” the Fifth Amendment act-of-production privilege that concededly arises when, as here, the record-keeping requirement presumptively applies to all taxpayers and the compelled production of records would be testimonial and incriminatory.
