It’s the beginning of the Supreme Court’s October Term 2022, and the Court kicked things off with the order list following its end-of-the-summer “Long Conference” last week.
It granted certiorari in nine cases today. Here are a few that may be of particular interest...

(No. 22-96): Does 48 U.S.C. § 2126(a)’s general grant of jurisdiction to the federal courts over claims against the Financial Oversight and Management Board for Puerto Rico and claims otherwise arising under the Puerto Rico Oversight, Management, and Economic Stability Act (PROMESA) abrogate the Board’s sovereign immunity with respect to all federal and territorial claims?
