MSC Administrative Conference

At the Court's administrative conference, the Court will review the process for recusing a justice from participating in a case. The Court's current practice is that if a party moves for a justice's recusal, that justice decides whether to participate in the case and is not required to explain the decision in writing. Justice Weaver has criticized the current practice is the strongest terms over the past several years.

The conference will occur after oral arguments today.' The agenda can be found here.
