Petitions to watch | Conference of November 1
on Oct 28, 2013 at 10:19 pm
At its November 1, 2013 Conference, the Court will consider petitions seeking review of issues such as the standing of an objecting class member to challenge a class-certification order, determining qualified immunity based on law at the time of the alleged wrong, and whether a suspect who expresses his desire to go home unequivocally and unambiguously invokes his Miranda rights.
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 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.
