A Look Ahead to the June Conferences

SCOTUS Blog [Supreme Court of the United States Blog] adds the Atlantic Yards federal eminent domain case, Goldstein v. Pataki, to its watch list as the Justices consider which cases to hear in the fall:

Before departing for the summer, the Justices will no doubt aim to fill the remainder of the October, November and December docket. Unless the Court opts to hear argument in more than two cases per day during those months, which is a possibility, it would need to grant cert in four additional cases to fill out the fall calendar. (UPDATE: Earlier today, Chief Justice Roberts announced the Court would hear three arguments per day in October and November. As a result, the Court will need to grant 14 cases before the summer recess to fill the fall calendar.)
...
Finally, in a high profile case that did not make our watch list — Goldstein v. Pataki (07-1247) — the Justices will consider an eminent domain challenge by a group of Brooklyn residents to the construction of an arena slated to house the professional basketball franchise currently located in New Jersey. Cert filings in the case are available here.
