Petitions to watch | Conference of May 22
on May 19, 2014 at 10:45 pm
At its Conference on May 22, 2014, the Court will consider petitions seeking review of issues such as the validity of an Alabama redistricting plan under the Voting Rights Act of 1965, the scope of an anti-retaliation provision under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and the standard to determine a “true threat” under the First Amendment.
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.
