On March 13, 2012, we printed and filed the Petition in Fairey v. Tucker, 11-7185. In the Conference of April 16th, the Court requested the record from the lower courts. On Thursday, the Court will take it up in Conference for the seventh time since requesting the record.
John Elwood at SCOTUSblog has been following this case, and you can read some of his pithier posts here, and here. [And we’ll give one free regular typeset page to the customer who can tell me what “Ouagadougou, Ferrous Hillock” means; no bonus for “Cistercian monks” though.]
