Petitions to watch | Conference of April 13, 2012

At its April 13, 2012 Conference, the Court will consider such issues as a challenge to the First Amendment “scarcity doctrine” in broadcasting, the right to a speedy trial when the defendant was not indicted, aggregating errors for ineffective assistance of counsel claims, and whether New York City’s rent regulation is a Fifth Amendment taking.  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.
