Hidalgo v. Arizona

Jordan Rubin has this article in BNA's Criminal Law Reporter looking at the certiorari petition in Hidalgo v. Arizona, No. 17-251, on yesterday's SCOTUS conference list.  This is Neal Katyal's quixotic effort to get the Supreme Court to reopen the question it settled 41 years ago in Gregg v. Georgia, i.e., that capital punishment is constitutional.  I don't think it has much of a chance, as noted in the story.

Stay tuned for the orders list, 9:30 a.m. EST Monday.

Update:  The case has been relisted for the December 1 conference.
