In this week’s order list, the Court did not issue any opinions or grant new petitions for argument. (( The Court did formally grant the petition in Insurance Corp. of Hannover v. Polk, No. 08-0813, and remand to the court of appeals to effectuate the parties’ settlement agreement. ))

Among other orders, the Court also granted a motion to seal in In re Hon. Jan P. Patterson, No. 08-0858, the mandamus about the internal workings of the Third Court. That motion was filed by Justice Patterson, and the mandamus petition remains pending.

Next week, the Court has a scheduled private conference on Monday and a holiday (Veterans Day) on Tuesday, followed by two days of oral argument on Wednesday and Thursday.
