The Supreme Court’s website shows that no conference was held yesterday. Accordingly, this week no action will be taken on petitions for review and no opinions will be ordered published or depublished.
The lack of a conference yesterday is a bit surprising, since the Court is not hearing oral argument this week and a conference is shown to be scheduled on the Court’s oral argument and conference calendar. We’re speculating, but the most likely reason for deviating from the calendar is that a two-day meeting of the Judicial Council is being held today and tomorrow. The Chief Justice will chair the meeting, of course, and Justice Marvin Baxter will also be in attendance as a member of the Council.
