Details on today’s orders

This morning, the Court issued orders from the Justices’ March 25 Conference, granting certiorari in one case, inviting the views of the United States in one case, and denying  all appeals made by Troy Davis. Today’s full order list is here.  The orders relating to the Troy Davis case are here.


The Court called for the views of the Acting Solicitor General in the following case:


The Court rejected all attempts by Georgia death row prisoner Troy Davis to further pursue his claim of innocence relating to a 1989 murder, for which he has been found guilty.  The Court dismissed an appeal by Davis and refused three other requests for discretionary release.  The impact of the Court’s orders is to leave in effect a federal judge’s ruling concluding that Davis is not innocent.
