Friday's Conference & USCA9 Capital Cases

The US Supreme Court meets Friday in a conference to decide which cases to take up for full consideration.  The Cert Pool has the conference list here.

Interestingly, there are three petitions in capital habeas cases from the Ninth Circuit, and they are all prisoners' petitions, seeking review of denials of habeas by the Ninth:  Schad v. Ryan (Arizona), 12-5534, Ybarra v. Baker (Nevada), 11-10652, and Payton v. Cullen (California), 12-5121.

It's taken a long time, but perhaps the Ninth really is getting the message.
