Scotusblog, the premier web site for U.S. Supreme Court news, periodically has a “Petitions to Watch” list. This is done in advance of every U.S. Supreme Court conference, and represents the opinion of the editors of Scotusblog that the listed cases have some hope of being chosen by the U.S. Supreme Court. Here is the Scotusblog list for the December 13 conference. It includes nine cases that are on the December 13 conference for the first time, and among the nine, is Libertarian Party of Michigan v Ruth Johnson. This is the case on whether Gary Johnson should have been on the Michigan 2012 ballot for President. Thanks to Thomas Jones for the link.
