ELSSCAP, the Emory Law School Supreme Court Advocacy Project, filed a cert. petition yesterday in Kasonso v. Holder. You can find the petition here.

Last month we filed a merits-stage amicus brief in Christopher v. SmithKline Beecham Corp., which you can find here. In December we filed a cert.-stage amicus brief in Standard Investment Chartered v. NASD, which you can find here.

I certainly am not posting these to distribute these briefs more widely, but instead I am posting these only to partially explain my relative absence from the internet. Oh, then there is the law review thing.
