Editor's Note :

In previous years, the Court released orders the morning after the Court’s “Long Conference.” It has not done so this year. Beginning last Term, the Court consistently considered petitions at least two times before granting certiorari. To the extent that practice continues -- and there is no affirmative evidence the Court intends to drop it -- we would not expect orders granting certiorari today.

Sherley v. Sebelius

Petition for certiorari denied on January 7, 2013
Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
12-454 D.C. Cir. N/A N/A N/A N/A OT 2012

Issue: (1) Whether the court of appeals erred in holding that an Executive Order can and did excuse an agency’s failure to comply with the Administrative Procedure Act; and (2) whether the court of appeals erred in holding that a preliminary-injunction ruling is binding law of the case, contrary to this Court’s settled rule that “the findings of fact and conclusions of law made by a court granting a preliminary injunction are not binding at trial on the merits,” University of Texas v. Camenisch.
