King v. Burwell, IRS Tax Credit Case, Relisted for November 7 Conference

November 3rd, 2014

The petition for certiorari from the 4th Circuit in King v. Burwell, the IRS Tax Credit case, has seemingly been relisted, and will be distributed for conference on 11/7/14.

You know the general caveats. One relist is a sign the petition is likely to be granted–especially after last term where every grant was preceded by a relist. Two or more reslists is a sign that there is a dissental in the works, so the petition will likely be denied. But, with this case, the Court may keep relisting it, or hold it, pending the D.C Circuit’s en banc proceeding on Dec. 11. Stay tuned.
