Petitions to watch | Conference of October 30

In its Conference of October 30, 2015, the Court will consider petitions seeking review of issues such as whether the Affordable Care Act’s contraceptive-coverage mandate violates the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, what type of analysis governs the extraterritorial application of the Fourth Amendment’s prohibition on unjustified deadly force, and whether Louisiana’s per se ban on the introduction of eyewitness identification expert testimony violates the Due Process, Confrontation, and Compulsory Process Clauses of the U.S. Constitution.

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.
