The petition of the day is:


Issue: Whether a federal court sitting in diversity must give deference to state intermediate appellate court decisions on a question of state law, absent state-highest-court precedent, or whether those intermediate court decisions are merely one factor among many to be considered in predicting the highest court’s likely ruling on that question.
