Petitions to watch | Conference of May 9, 2013
on May 7, 2013 at 1:00 pm
At its May 9, 2013 Conference, the Court will consider petitions seeking review of issues such as the constitutionality of legislative prayer practices, successive habeas motions under the Antiterrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act, review of withdrawal from a remedy imposed by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, and a suspect’s requests to contact an attorney.
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.
