Petitions to watch | Conference of September 30
on Aug 13, 2013 at 10:03 am
At its September 30, 2013 Conference, the Court will consider petitions seeking review of issues such as determining qualified immunity based on the law at time of the conduct at issue, res judiciata as a bar to second removal proceedings, and proof of intent to send threatening communications.
This is our first of three “Petitions to watch” installments for the September 30 Conference. We feature 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, P.C. represents the respondent(s) but does not appear on the briefs in the case.
