US Supreme Court Next Week

Next week on Monday, the Supreme Court will issue an orders list, indicating which cases it will take up and which it will not from those considered in today's conference. Some of the petitions considered are listed at SCOTUSblog. The Court will hear oral argument in Wall v. Kholi, an AEDPA statute of limitations case, and Walker v. Martin, on when a state procedural default rule is "adequate" to preclude review of the defaulted claim on federal habeas.

On Tuesday, the Court will issue one or more opinions in argued cases.  Opinions issued this early in the term are typically the less controversial ones with decisions that are unanimous or nearly so.  The Court will also hear oral argument in the big California prisoner release case, Schwarzenegger v. Plata, featuring Phillips v. Clement.
