Petitions to watch | Conference of October 10
on Oct 8, 2014 at 12:00 pm
At its Conference on October 10, 2014, the Court will consider petitions seeking review of issues such as specific personal jurisdiction over a nationwide conspiracy to manipulate the price of natural gas, proof of causation in a prosecution for insider trading, and the application of the Confrontation Clause to evidence introduced to establish eligibility for the death penalty.
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.
