Petitions to watch | Conference of June 14, 2012

At its June 14, 2012 Conference, the Court will consider the petition in American Tradition Partnership, Inc. v. Bullock – the Citizens United sequel seeking review of a Montana state law that restricts the political spending options of corporations.  The Court will also consider such issues as how to determine the credibility of an asylum applicant, equitable tolling for a Medicare payment appeal, and whether the First Amendment permits the imposition of a trust on church property.  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 full list of our “Petitions to watch” for the June 7 Conference can be found here.  Any cases that are relisted following the June 7 Conference will be added to this list once that information is available.














Cases involving lawyers from Goldstein & Russell (listed without regard to the likelihood of being granted):



The following petitions have been re-listed for the Conference of June 14.  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.
