A party who loses in the Eighth Circuit and who wishes to pursue further recourse can either seek a motion for rehearing or pursue certiorari review by the United States Supreme Court. Our panel of Eighth Circuit Appellate Practice experts will address the rules on rehearing, the grounds for rehearing and a party’s odds on rehearing. This course will also address the factors that make a case a good candidate for certiorari – and a petition for certiorari a persuasive one – as well as the technical requirements for petitions and responses to petitions. Further, our panelists will highlight recent developments in certiorari review and provide practical tips for drafting amicus briefs and other procedural submissions.
All attendees will receive a month of free access to the LinkedLaw edition of Minnesota CLE’s Eighth Circuit Appellate Practice Manual.
