Extension for Cantu

| 1 Comment
Surprisingly, the hard-nosed Justice Scalia has granted an extension to file the certiorari petition to the notorious Peter Anthony Cantu, the leader of the gang whose crimes gave rise to Medellin v. Texas. Prior posts on the case are here, here, here, and here.

Justice Scalia went so far as to give 2 more days than Cantu's lawyer requested. She asked for February 6, a Saturday, and he gave her until the following Monday, February 8. Execution in June, perhaps.
