Extensions of time to file a writ of certiorari are not routinely granted.Ahhh. I'm not a big SCOTUS watcher; do you have a rough percentage of those that are? (Obviously, such things are not influenced by luck; a well-argued request will more likely be granted than a the-D.C.-bar dog-ate-my-petition request.)Sorry Bob, I'm not a big Supreme Court watcher either, and can't begin to give you any kind of percentage. I just have a recollection of some kind of research that I did quite a while ago that exposed me to lots of orders along the lines of "petition for extension of time denied, petition for certiorari denied." I seem to recall that these were mostly pro se criminal cases, and of course, for the most part hopeless.





I should have mentioned in my original post that Biglaw motions for extensions are _always_ filed a couple of weeks before the deadline, and you can bet your granny boots that there was a perfectly adequate draft petition sitting on the lead partner's desk ready to be filed if the motion were to be denied.

I see from a post at Doc C's site by our Foggisimus in chief that a Supreme Court rule requires motions for an extension of time to file a petition for certiorari to be filed 10 days before the deadline. I think I knew that once. One could criticize the rule as class biased, because small firms are much more likely to have short-fuse unforeseeable emergencies than Biglaw establishments. That issue aside, LK's untimely motion is dead on arrival.

Yeah, well, if one were to do, as who should say, contemporaneous research, who knows what kind of information might turn up. But not quite cricket, eh?

Kkklayman had a good excuse. He was up for censure in the DC Bar. And was, ultimately, censured. Wonder if he'll list that as the reason

Klayman's censure was a negotiated agreement--a mere slap on the wrist and no hearing. See:http://www.thefogbow.com/forum/viewtopi ... 50#p621350

Jul 30 2014 DISTRIBUTED for Conference of September 29, 2014.SCOTUS' calendar doesn't show a conference for this week, but news of the cert. grants is trickling in. I assume on Monday SCOTUS will publish its list of cert. denials, which will include this case. (And two other petitions that Klayman has filed.)Voeltz and Klayman's Facebook cases are going to conference next week. So their denial should be announced on October 14.

I think there were some 1800+ petitions on the conference for the 29th, the long conference. I can't imangine the joy it must be for the clerks entering all of that.
