After a series of late Thursday-night orders that cleared the way for the federal government to carry out the latest execution of a person on death row, the Supreme Court meets Friday morning for its weekly private conference to consider pending petitions seeking the court’s review. Among the petitions slated to be discussed are two that were relisted from last week’s conference: one involving the “community caretaking” exception to the Fourth Amendment, and the other involving the authority of Native American police officers to detain and investigate non-tribe members. Also on the agenda is a case involving the legality of programs in Medicaid that impose work requirements on recipients as a condition for maintaining health coverage. For a list of all the significant petitions we’re watching, see our petitions page.
