Iskanian Relisted by Supreme Court

Posted by Eric Kingsley | Jan 12, 2015 | 0 Comments

We were supposed to know today if Iskanian v. CLS was to be taken up by the Supreme Court.  Evidently, they choose to punt that decision to another week.  The court made no decision either way and relisted the decision for this Friday's conference.  In some research I found online it appears that relists are quite common and typically a case will be relisted before it is granted.  


There were 13 relists today and an article in Washington Post stated that relists are taken up about 45% of the time.  So while this would appear to be perceived as bad news, its not as bad as it might seem in that there are many resoans why they ultimately choose not to take up the case.  We shall see as this develops.  I should note that serial relists are not uncommon.  I saw one where there were 10 and another where there were 24 and they ended up not taking up the case.  Tea leaves are hard to read here, so we all have to wait.
