Petitions to watch | Conference of September 28, Part I
on Sep 23, 2015 at 6:00 pm
In its “Long Conference” of September 28, 2015, the Court will consider petitions seeking review of issues such as whether state law may nullify the federal “patient safety work product” privilege; whether an officer who fired his service rifle at a vehicle involved in a high-speed chase acted reasonably under the Fourth Amendment; and whether legislation that provides for the reopening of the final order of a federal bankruptcy court (and permits a private arbitrator to reverse it) is unconstitutional.
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.
