Petitions to watch | Conference of March 7

At its Conference on March 7, 2014, the Court will consider petitions seeking review of issues such as regulation of lewd expression in the public schools, whether Congress may confer standing to sue when the plaintiff suffers no concrete injury, employees’ personal liability under the Fair Labor Standards Act, and unwritten promises to defendants in exchange for guilty pleas.

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.
