The Court granted four cert petitions yesterday morning. The issues presented in those petitions included bankruptcy matters, the Court of Federal Claims’ jurisdiction, the first-sale doctrine of the Copyright Act and in what circumstances an employer is liable based on the unlawful intent of officials who caused or influenced but did not make the ultimate employment decision. See Ransom v. MBNA, America Bank, No. 09-907; United States v. Tohono O’odham Nation, No. 09-846; Costco v. Omega, No. 08-1423; and Staub v. Proctor Hospital, No. 09-400.
