Levine to Next Term?

We haven't seen any formal announcement, but the remainder of the Court's argument schedule for the current term has now been finalized, and Wyeth v. Levine isn't on it (neither is the other preemption case, PM v. Good). The two cases from the six granted on 1/18 that are on the list are MetLife v. Glenn and Meacham v. Knolls Atomic Power Laboratory. That says to us that Levine won't get decided this term.

We mentioned the politics over that in a previous post, so we won't repeat it here. Suffice it to say that we're disappointed.

Levine and Good oral arguments are set for October.

We think that's not exactly right. The cases have been held over for the October, 2008 Term, but they have not, as far as we can tell, set for argument in October, 2008. We've looked, but haven't found anything on the Court's website that any arguments have been so far scheduled for the October, 2008 Term.

If anyone out there knows more, please tell us.
