OK Law Geeks, Here We Go!

By statute (28 U.S.C. sec. 2), the Supreme Court Term begins on the First Monday of October, viz., next Monday, October 2.  The summer recess, though, ends today with the "long conference" at which the Court considers hundreds of certiorari petitions that have been filed since June.  "Considers" is of course overstating the point, as many of the petitions will receive no discussion in the conference itself because they present no important question of federal law.

SCOTUS Blog has a post that is well worth reading about the conference itself and about the schedule of argument that might emerge as a result of the cert. grants that may issue tomorrow.  There are several interesting cases that might be granted; you can see the list with a short description the ones Tom Goldstein has identified as having a "reasonable" chance here.
