Petitions to watch | Conference of September 30 (Part 3)

At its September 30, 2013 Conference, the Court will consider petitions seeking review of issues such as the termination of parental rights under the Indian Child Welfare Act, the constitutionality of Virginia’s “crimes against nature” statute, protections on free speech interests of government employees, and a free exercise challenge to workers’ compensation requirements.

This is our third of three installments of “Petitions to watch” for the September 30 Conference.  (Earlier installments are here and here). 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 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.
