Petitions to watch | Conference of October 26, 2012

At its October 26, 2012 Conference, the Court will consider such issues as the Confrontation Clause treatment of trial testimony by anonymous witnesses, Texas’s assessment of mental retardation, disparate impact claims and the Fair Housing Act, the “actual innocence” exception to AEDPA’s timely filing requirement, and the constitutionality of Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act.

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.
