Petition of the day, explained


The “Petition of the day” posts feature petitions that are likely to appear on our “Petitions to watch” list when they are scheduled for consideration by the Justices. “Petitions of the day” are those that Tom has identified as raising one or more questions that have a reasonable chance of being granted in an appropriate case. We generally do not attempt to evaluate whether the case presents an appropriate vehicle to decide the question, which is a critical consideration in determining whether certiorari will be granted.
