Petitions to watch | Conference of March 15, 2013

At its March 15, 2013 Conference, the Court will consider petitions seeking review of issues such as the scope of qualified research expenses for tax credits, the constitutionality of an amendment to a state constitution prohibiting affirmative action, the effect when a parolee commits new offenses, and Hague Convention standards governing the return of abducted children.

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.  Our policy is to include and disclose all cases in which Goldstein & Russell, P.C., whose attorneys work for or contribute to this blog in various capacities, represents either a party or an amicus in the case, with the exception of the rare cases in which Goldstein & Russell represents the respondent(s) but does not appear on the briefs in the case.
