October 15

Tomorrow morning, the Supreme Court will announce orders relating to two cert petitions we filed (with substantial and critically necessary pro bono assistance) that it considered at its October 11 conference: Martin v. Blessing (which long-time readers remember as the Sirius XM case) and Marek v. Lane (the Facebook Beacon cy pres case). Both petitions made SCOTUSblog’s “Petitions We’re Watching” list, which means that the experts there think that those petitions have a better than average chance of being granted–but since “average” means “less than 1%,” odds are still long.

I’ll be speaking at the University of Chicago Law School at lunchtime, and hope to see some readers there.
