At its Conference on March 21, 2014, the Court will consider petitions seeking review of issues such as qualified immunity from Fourth Amendment liability, the constitutionality of a state statute authorizing state judges to arbitrate business disputes, and the applicability of public accommodations statute to wedding photographer opposed to same-sex marriage.
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.
