Petitions to watch | Conference of January 23

At its Conference on January 23, 2015, the Court will consider petitions seeking review of issues such as judicial immunity under Section 1983, a general appeal waiver in a challenge to a restitution order, and the interpretation of the term “habitual residence” in the Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction.

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.
