The SG has waived the United States' right to respond to the cert petition in Rhoades v. United States, No. 07-1248. We previously looked at the Rhoades cert petition here and looked at the underlying CAAF opinion here. And time is running out on the Justices' opportunity to ask the SG to take a position on whether Maryland v. Craig is irreconcilable with Crawford v. Washington. The cert petition in Pack v. United States, No. 07-1176, is slated to go to conference this Friday. If no one asks the SG to respond before then, it will be a cert denial on Monday's order list.
