SCOTUS Cert Grant on Younger Abstention: Sprint v. Jacobs

Today the Supreme Court granted certiorari in Sprint Communications Co., L.P. v. Jacobs (No. 12-815). Here is the question presented:

Whether the Eighth Circuit erred by concluding, in conflict with decisions of nine other circuits and this Court, that Younger abstention is warranted not only when there is a related state proceeding that is “coercive” but also when there is a related state proceeding that is, instead, “remedial.”

You can find a link to the Eighth Circuit’s decision below and other information about the case at SCOTUSblog’s casefile.
