I just relooked at the cert petition in Craig v. United States, 75 USLW 3367 (No. 06-802 Jan. 16, 2007) (order denying certiorari). We previously discussed the Craig cert petition here, here, here, here, and, of course, here.
Guess what? Salvador Diaz was one of the petitioners in Craig. So why on earth was he requesting an extension of his filing deadline at the Supremes nine days AFTER his cert petition was filed? Can anyone explain this?
