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.
