Petitions to watch | Conference of September 28, Part II
on Sep 24, 2015 at 3:30 pm
In its “Long Conference” of September 28, 2015, the Court will consider petitions seeking review of issues such as whether briefly retaining a citizen’s ID to check its validity and for warrants transforms an otherwise lawful encounter into an unlawful seizure under the Fourth Amendment; whether Louisiana’s per se ban on the introduction of eyewitness identification expert testimony violates the U.S. Constitution; and whether a grant or conveyance of an exclusive patent license must be in writing.
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.
