Petitions to watch | Conference of September 26, 2011

On Monday, September 26, the Justices will return from the Court’s summer recess.  At their Conference that day, they will select cases for review from the summer lists.  This is our final installment of “Petitions to watch” for that Conference; the earlier installments are available here, here, here, and here.  The petitions in this installment cover issues such as the Commerce and Supremacy Clauses, the contours of habeas relief, and the “frustration of purpose” theory of preemption.  These are petitions raising issues that Tom has determined to 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.
