"On September 29, 2008, the Supreme Court will convene for what is known as the long conference. Here is where the Court meets privately to make decisions on the summer backlog of cert petitions. There are EIGHT Indian law-related cert petitions scheduled for review in the long conference. There is a very good chance that one or more of these petitions will be granted.
1. Hawaii v. Office of Indian Affairs (07-1372)
This petition has a fairly good chance to be granted.
2. Ho-Chunk Nation v. Wisconsin (07-1402)
I don’t think this one has much chance to be granted.
3. Kemp v. Osage Nation (07-1484)
This has a fairly good chance of being granted, too, but maybe not as good as the Hawaii case.
4. Kickapoo v. Texas (07-1109)
This one has a slight chance for a grant.
5. Klamath Tribes v. PacificCorp (07-1492)
This one has no chance.
6. Matheson v. Gregoire (08-23)
Again, no chance.
7. South Fork Band v. United States (08-100, 08-231)
8. United States v. Navajo Nation (07-1410)
Very, very good chance for a grant."Get the Story:
