No Ruling Yet on Second Cert. Petition in Philip Morris v. Williams

As we noted in a prior post, the second cert. petition in Philip Morris v. Williams was distributed for consideration at the Supreme Court's May 22 conference. (See the online docket.) Today the Supreme Court has released its Order List showing the rulings made at the May 22 conference. The list makes no mention of Williams. Apparently, the court has deferred consideration of that petition to a later conference.
