There are no new cert. grants. Â The Court has asked for the views of the United States in two cases: Triple-S Management v. Municipal Revenue Collection (09-233) and Janus Capital Group v. First Derivative Traders (09-525).Â The full order list is here.
UPDATE, 10:30 a.m.: The Court has summarily decided an old case, McDaniel v. Brown (08-559), which was granted in January 2009, scheduled for oral argument, and then pulled from the argument schedule. Â In a per curiam opinion, the Court reverses the Ninth Circuit.
Title: Triple-S Management Corporation v. Municipal Revenue Collection Center
Issue: Is the executive branch, unlike the legislativeÂ branch, free of all due process constraints onÂ retroactive government action, as long as itÂ asserts that its earlier interpretation of law wasÂ â€wrongâ€?
