Petitions to watch | Conference of March 25

In its Conference of March 25, 2016, the Court will consider petitions involving issues such as whether the Double Jeopardy Clause permits a district court to retract its “judgment of acquittal” entered on remand as an interpretation of the court of appeals’ mandate; 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.
