Early last week, there was a petition for certiorari filed at the United States Supreme Court. The cert. petition was written by my good friend and classmate Mark Rienzi (who clerked for Judge Stephen Williams the year after me), Ed DuMont (a partner at Mark's firm, and a former Assistant Solicitor General), and me. Noted Supreme Court practitioner Tom Goldstein graciously had the cert. petition posted at his Supreme Court blog, where you can read the as-filed PDF version, if you're so inclined. The case involves a First Amendment challenge to a Massachusetts buffer zone law. The First Circuit's decision can be found here.
