Supreme Court Hears Final Cases of the Week

Cases deal with statute of limitation questions and habeas corpus rules

The Supreme Court heard oral arguments in the final cases of this week: Intel Corp. Investment Policy Committee v. Sulyma, and Banister v. Davis.

The case of Intel Corp. Investment Policy Committee v. Sulyma seeks to answer questions having to do with the statute of limitations in the Employment Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA). The question falls on when the three-year statute of limitation begins—when the plaintiff is actually aware of the violation, or when the violation is presented to the plaintiff.

Banister v. Davis asks the Justices of the Court to determine if and when a motion to change a judgment should be treated as a second or successive petition for habeas corpus. Habeas Corpus is an action where one can be brought to court because they believe their imprisonment is unlawful.

As the Lord Leads, pray with us:
  • For God to give the Justices of the Court wisdom on how to rule on these cases
  • For wisdom for the Supreme Court on which cases to hear in the future.
  • That greater justice would be brought about in the nation as a result of these cases.
