The Supreme Court on Monday released added orders from its Friday Conference, but the list did not include any on the ten cases dealing with the marriage equality issue. It now appears that those cases will be rescheduled for the Conference this Friday. The Court asked the U.S. Solicitor General for the federal government’s views on Law v. Siegel (docket 12-5196), a case dealing with the power of a bankruptcy trustee to impose on the debtor a special charge, and for other sanctions, for failing to comply with the trustee’s demands for information during discovery.
