Petitions to watch | Conference of February 21

At its Conference on February 21, 2014, the Court will consider petitions seeking review of issues such as rights of eighteen- to twenty-year-olds under the Second Amendment, police use of nontrivial force against a passively resisting arrestee, Federal Power Act requirements for interstate electric rates, preemption of local ordinances banning renting housing to illegal aliens, and whether hosting poker games is a federal felony.

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.
