Petitions to watch | Conference of May 31, 2012

At its May 31, 2012 Conference, the Court will consider such issues as dismissing a claim so that it may be appealed instead of amended, bribery and implied “explicit” promises, mens rea in the federal alien smuggling statute, and whether the police can detain someone away from the premises being searched while executing a search warrant.  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 May 31.  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.
