US SUPREME COURT CONFERENCE ON ALLEN STANFORD'S CERT APPLICATION IS TODAY


For those readers who have been waiting, impatiently, for the US Supreme Court to rule on the Certiorari Petition of the convicted master Ponzi schemer, R Allen Stanford, it is scheduled for conference today, November 21st, according to the docket.

 The originally-set September conference was scheduled, after the Court requested that the Solicitor General, acting on behalf of the United States, as Respondent, file a reply. The US had originally waived its right to file a response. Whether the Court made the request, due to the high profile nature of Stanford's case, or whether there may be a germ of merit in his petition, we cannot say, but the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals affirmed his conviction & sentence, so we wait for the high court's ruling, anticipating the expected outcome, but still knowing that one cannot predict what it will be; Stay tuned.
