Petitions to watch | Conference of June 16

In its Conference of June 16, 2016, the Court will consider petitions involving issues such as whether non-citizens seeking admission to the United States who are subject to mandatory detention under 8 U.S.C. § 1225(b) must be given bond hearings if detention lasts six months; whether an attorney representing a defendant in a death penalty case may decide to present evidence of a single mitigating factor without having first conducted a thorough investigation of other potential mitigating factors; and whether a law prohibiting religiously motivated conduct violates the Free Exercise Clause when it exempts the same conduct when done for secular reasons.
