Petitions to watch | Conference of March 23, 2012

At its March 23, 2012 Conference, the Court will consider such issues as banning religious materials in public schools, entering a home to issue a criminal summons, attorney fees when the case becomes moot on appeal, and whether an issue can be precluded even if it was not “actually decided.”  This edition of “Petitions to watch” features 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.












The following petitions have been re-listed for the conference of March 23.  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.
