Petitions to watch | Conference of May 15

At its Conference on May 15, 2014, the Court will consider petitions seeking review of issues such as forensic pathology reports under the Confrontation Clause, monetary sanctions against the government for defiance of court orders, the constitutionality of a deferred tax on the extraction and manufacture of coal, and an arbitrator’s failure to disclose conflicts of interest.

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.
