Petitions to watch | Conference of May 10, 2012
on May 7, 2012 at 3:20 pm
At its May 10, 2012 Conference, the Court will consider such issues as the First Amendment right to advertise a hedge fund, certifying a class before resolving “merits arguments” relevant to the certification, and whether a new trial is required when scientific evidence is later determined to be unreliable. 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 petition has been re-listed for the conference of May 10. 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.
