SCOTUS March 20 Conference

| 1 Comment
SCOTUSblog has their "petitions to watch" list for the March 20 conference here, with two criminal cases. One is the warden's (actually Philly DA's) petition in the continuing saga of Mumia Abu-Jamal, No. 08-652. Good chance this one will be "relisted" to be considered together with Abu-Jamal's cross-petition, No. 08-8483.

In Clark v. United States, No. 08-673, the defense side seeks once more to overrule Harris v. United States and apply Apprendi to mandatory minimums.

Also, there are two crime-related civil cases. Amerisource Corp. v. United States, No. 08-497, addresses evidence seizures and the Takings Clause.  Pavey v. Conley, No. 08-886, deals with the Prison Litigation Reform Act and exhaustion.

Isn't it possible that the Abu-Jamal case gets held in abeyance until the Ohio death case gets resolved?
