Petitions to watch | Conference of June 20, 2013

At its June 20, 2013 Conference, the Court will consider petitions seeking review of issues such as the constitutionality of the president’s recess appointments to the National Labor Relations Board, the constitutionality of a state law requiring pre-abortion ultrasounds, whether habeas proceedings can be used to challenge sex offender registration, common law immunity for foreign officials acting on behalf of foreign states, and whether equitable tolling is available under the Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction.

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.
