In its second order list from last week’s Conference, the Court today invited the Solicitor General to file briefs expressing the views of the United States in five cases.  (In another post today, Lyle also discusses the order list, including some of the high-profile cases in which the Court either denied certiorari or declined to act.)  The Court called for the views of  the Solicitor General in the following cases:
