Bennett v. Arksansas, 485 U.S. 395 (1988)

Dear Chief,

As you may recall, petitioner's counsel informed us at oral argument that because Shelton did not complete a necessary IFP affidavit, his petition for certiorari was not filed by the clerk. Johnson was a party in the proceedings but did not seek certiorari. In view of the jurisdictional deficiencies, do you still wish the per curiam to cover Shelton and Johnson?

09-25-1987 Clerk's Memo, Unknown Sep 1987

09-25-1987 Clerk's Memo, Unknown

Bennett v. Arksansas, 485 U.S. 395 (1988)

Views of SG requested ad received, 9/22/87... The SG concludes that the decision of the Ark. Supreme Court is clearly wrong. It violates the plain language of the statutes, and the facts of this case cannot properly be distinguished from Philpott v. Essex County Welfare Board, 409 U.S. 413 (1973), in which that Court unanimously held that the Social Security statute means what it says; the stat may not seize Social Security benefits. In that case, that state tried to recoup payments to a welfare recipient.

07-01-1986 Per Curiam, William J. Brennan

Bazemore v. Friday, 478 U.S. 385 (1986)

These cases present several issues arising out of petitioners' action against respondents for alleged racial discrimination in employment and provision of services by the North Carolina Agricultural Extension Service (Extension Service). The District Court declined to certify various proposed classes and, after a lengthy trial, entered judgment for respondents in all respects, finding that petitioners had not carried their burden of demonstrating that respondents had engaged in a pattern or practice of racial discrimination. The District Court also ruled against each of the individual plaintiff 's discrimination claims. The Court of Appeals affirmed. 751 F. 2d 662 (CA4 1984).

Allen v. Hardy, 478 U.S. 255 (1986)

On all too many occasions in recent years, I have felt compelled to express my dissatisfaction with this Court's readiness to dispose summarily of petitions for certiorari on the merits without affording the parties prior notice or an opportunity to file briefs. See, e.g., City of Los Angeles v. Heller, 475 U. S. --, -- (1986) (MARSHALL, J., dissenting); Cuyahoga Valley R. Co. v. Transportation Union, 474 U. S. --, - - (1985) (MARSHALL, J., dissenting); Maggio v. Fulford, 462 U. S. 111, 120-121 (1983) (MARSHALL, J., dissenting). "[B]y deciding cases summarily, without benefit of oral …
