Smith v. United States, No. 10-18, is the first case listed on SCOTUSblog’s “Petitions to watch” list for tomorrow’s conference.  Appearing on the list means that the petition raises an issue that Tom Goldstein “has determined to have a reasonable chance of being granted, although we post them here without consideration of whether they present appropriate vehicles in which to decide those issues.”  We’ll know a little past 1000 next Monday.

    They have to grant, if for no other reason than to write an opinion about a judge named Judge, and whether Judge Judge judged correctly.

    It’s a week for names.

    Notice that Putzy didn’t make the “I think it is a good case” list.
