Petitions to watch | Conference of January 8

In its Conference of January 8, 2016, the Court will consider petitions seeking review of issues such as whether “service advisors” at car dealerships are exempt from the Fair Labor Standards Act’s overtime-pay requirements, whether a stun gun is an “arm” within the meaning of the Second Amendment, and whether a federal court of appeals has jurisdiction to review an order denying class certification after the named plaintiffs voluntarily dismiss their claims with prejudice.

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.
