Petitions to watch | Conference of February 28
on Feb 24, 2014 at 10:36 pm
At its Conference on February 28, 2014, the Court will consider petitions seeking review of issues such as “trade or business” status under ERISA, the time limitation in Section 13 of the Securities Act, whether state wage rates supersede collectively-bargained wage rates, and whether campaign contributions are bribery absent an “explicit” quid pro quo.
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.
