Petitions to watch | Conference of January 24
on Jan 22, 2014 at 10:37 pm
At its Conference on January 24, 2014, the Court will consider petitions seeking review of issues such as a civil court’s resolution of a church property dispute, a motion for new trial based on juror dishonesty in voir dire, qualified immunity from Fourth Amendment liability, and the effect of state abatement rules on Section 1983 claims.
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.
