Petitions to watch | Conference of December 12
on Dec 9, 2014 at 5:00 pm
At its Conference on December 12, 2014, the Court will consider petitions seeking review of issues such as removability under the Class Action Fairness Act, the constitutionality of an Arizona law limiting the availability of abortions performed with medication, and the presumption of judicial vindictiveness under North Carolina v. Pearce.
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.
