In their final conference of 2020, the justices will meet privately on Friday to discuss pending petitions seeking the court’s review. A list of noteworthy cases slated to be discussed is available here. And after allowing the federal government to proceed with the execution of Brandon Bernard on Thursday night, the court will have to act on another capital case. Alfred Bourgeois, who is scheduled to be executed Friday evening, has asked the justices to order a stay of his execution.
