The Long Conference

The U.S. Supreme Court justices are meeting today to consider the stack of petitions built up over the summer.  These are petitions from people who have appealed their cases to the second-highest level of courts and now want the Supreme Court to review them.  There are so many such petitions that the high court can only take about 1% of them.

The Cert Pool has the conference list.  There are over 1800 cases on it.  That's why it's called the "long conference."
