In less than a month, the Supreme Court will begin its 2020-21 term. In advance of the term’s opening day and first oral arguments on Oct. 5, the court is scheduled to hold its so-called “long conference” on Sept. 29. That’s when the justices meet privately to consider all of the cert petitions that have been steadily rolling in throughout the summer recess. In a series of articles at Howe on the Court, Amy Howe will preview some of the most interesting petitions slated to be discussed at the long conference. In the first entry in that series, Howe looks at petitions involving objections to union representation, a criminal conviction based on perjured testimony, and a constitutional challenge to a state’s “revenge porn” law.

Briefly:

We rely on our readers to send us links for our round-up. If you have or know of a recent (published in the last two or three days) article, post, podcast or op-ed relating to the Supreme Court that you’d like us to consider for inclusion, please send it to roundup@scotusblog.com. Thank you!
