Petitions to watch | Conference of 10.29.10 (Updated)

UPDATE (Oct. 26, 2010; 11:30 a.m.): This post has been modified to include petitions that have been re-listed for the Conference of October 29.

This edition of “Petitions to watch” features cases up for consideration at the Justices’ October 29 conference.  These are petitions raising issues that Tom has determined have a reasonable chance of being granted, although we post them here without consideration of whether they present appropriate vehicles in which to decide those issues.













DISCLOSURE: Howe & Russell and Akin Gump represent parties in the two cases below; these cases are listed here without regard to their chances of being granted.




The following petitions have been re-listed for the conference of October 29.  If any other paid petitions are redistributed for this conference, we will add them below as soon as their redistribution is noted on the docket.
