Supreme Court November oral argument schedule

The Supreme Court has issued its schedule of oral arguments for the first month of its next term and there are three cases related to torts or other claims for damages.

On Tuesday, Nov. 1, the second day of oral arguments, the Court will hear Rehberg v. Paulk (10-788) which deals with the scope of immunity for government official who initiates a criminal case then testifies falsely to a grand jury and Minneci v. Pollard (10-1104) which addresses the right to sue for damages for constitutional violations by private employees working for the government under contract

On Wednesday, Nov. 9, the Court will hear Kurns v. Railroad Friction Products Corp. (10-879) which asks whether federal law bars railroad workers from suing in state courts for injuries while repairing locomotives

As usual, for more details and information on these (and any other Supreme Court case), including links to the briefs, lower court opinions, and other documents, go to the SCOTUS case files page (here).
