|13-9085||9th Cir.||Not Argued||Jul 1, 2014||TBD||TBD||OT 2013|
Issue: (1) Whether, in denying rehearing after deciding Johnson v. Williams, this Court meant to bar a deferential review on remand, or whether denial of rehearing simply reflected that disputes regarding the scope of this Court’s mandate were to be resolved on remand; and (2) whether the previous denial of certiorari as to the question of whether Ms. Williams could prevail under deferential review, or the subsequent denial of rehearing, constituted “certiorari granted” under 28 U.S.C. § 1254, where the Court’s opinion contained no discussion of a question outside a limited grant of certiorari.
Judgment: Vacated and remanded on July 1, 2014.

It's the Great Pumpkin, Chief Justice Roberts.

A week from today, the Supreme Court will hear argument on the scope of the Second Amendment's right to bear arms. It's a case that could ultimately determine the fate of many gun-control measures around the country. Here's our preview, from @AHoweBlogger:

The court has rescheduled oral argument in Shinn v. Ramirez, an important case involving habeas rights and the death penalty, for Dec. 8.
#SCOTUS also issues revised December argument calendar, adding Shinn v. Ramirez (moved to December from November to accommodate Texas cases) on Dec. 8: https://www.scotusblog.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/10-26-21-Amended-DEC-2021-Monthly-Argument-Session-Calendar.pdf
