Petitions to watch | Conference of December 13
on Dec 9, 2013 at 10:46 pm
At its December 13, 2013 Conference, the Court will consider petitions seeking review of issues such as secondary liability for supporting terrorist organizations under the Anti-Terrorism Act, a tribe’s eminent domain powers over a corporation located on tribal land, sanctions for violating the understood purpose of an injunction, and the constitutionality of a state ban on passive political statements written on clothing in polling places.
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.
