Wednesday round-up


  • At the Appellate Practice Blog of the International Municipal Lawyers Association, Lisa Soronen discusses Green v. Donohoe, in which the Court recently granted cert. to determine when the filing period for a constructive discharge begins to run; she suggests that the Court probably granted review “to resolve a circuit split that has been brewing for the last 25 years.”
  • At The Legal Intelligencer, Charles Kelbley discusses the March 25 oral arguments in the Clean Air Act cases and concludes that, “based on what the justices said and the questions they asked during oral argument, there may be four votes for the challengers and four for the EPA, with Kennedy, as is often the case, holding the swing vote for one of the two sides.”
  • At BuzzFeed, Chris McDaniel reports that the “Oklahoma attorney general’s office misrepresented the facts behind a key argument about the availability of certain execution drugs in its filings at the U.S. Supreme Court.”
  • In an op-ed for the Los Angeles Times, Edward Blum urges the Court to grant review in a“constitutional challenge to how Texas created its state Senate districts” that “could reestablish electoral fairness in dozens of voting districts — not just in Texas but throughout the country.”
