Petitions to watch | Conference of April 1

In its Conference of April 1, 2016, the Court will consider petitions involving issues such as whether third-party home care employers can avail themselves of the “home care” exemptions to overtime provisions in the Fair Labor Standards Act; whether an occupational licensee who shields himself from regulatory questioning with the Fifth Amendment and suffers licensing consequences can successfully wield the Fifth Amendment as a sword in a Section 1983 action; and whether the Sixth Circuit failed to apply either layer of the double deference due on federal habeas review when a state court’s Strickland v. Washington analysis is reviewed through the lens of the Antiterrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act.
