Comment: DOJ Petitions Supreme Court to Rehear DAPA Case
Department of Justice petitioned the Supreme Court for rehearing of US v. Texas before a full Nine-Member Court. In US v. Texas, a deadlocked 4-4 Supreme Court let stand the injunction against implementation of President Obama's Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents, or DAPA program. DOJ argued that "Ordinarily, it is exceedingly rare for this Court to grant rehearing. But when this Court has conducted plenary review and then affirmed by vote of an equally divided court because of a vacancy rather than a disqualification, the Court has not infrequently granted rehearing before a full Bench."
