A Petition for Certiorari to the United States Supreme Court requires ability to distill complex issues, facts and legal research into a small booklet that must pique the interest of at least one of the nine Justices, upon first glance, and make it through an acceptance vote at their Friday conference between October and July. Only about 100 Writs of Certiorari are granted each year, out of over 4000 Petitions, but the effort and expense are often worthwhile. I've filed four such petitions on my own behalf, since 1981, dealing with the Federal Domestic Relations Abstention Doctrine, Defects in Absolute Judicial Tort Immunity, Vagueness of a State Criminal Contempt Rule, and Unconstitutionality of State Bar Procedures.

I've also filed two original-jurisdiction Supreme Court Petitions for Writ of Habeas Corpus on behalf of Elian Gonzalez, which may have kept the pressure up for his eventual return. I've also filed Petitions which I wrote on a contract basis for Pro Se litigants. For example, one attacked the Federal Rooker-Feldman Doctrine, by which Federal District Courts evade hearing cases claimed to constitute, or be "inextricably intertwined with", the "appeal of state court decisions". The Doctrine was used to dismiss a Federal Gender-Discrimination case arising from wrongful use of Domestic Violence "Protection from Abuse Orders." Another Petition for Writ of Certiorari, dealt with withdrawal of a criminal "Alford Plea" which was coerced by a State judge who angrily revoked a defendant's long-standing pretrial bail and threw him into jail because the defendant invoked his constitutional right to a jury trial. The Appellant's criminal charges arose from his disabling a tow truck, which was illegally repossessing his vehicle, by shooting out one of the tow truck's tires.

Most recently, I wrote the Supreme Court Petition for a man who had proved via modern blood testing, that he was not the father of a child he had been tricked into supporting for ten years, yet was still being forced to pay support. Interesting cases, all, worthy of that rarely granted acceptance by our Supreme Court. I'm increasingly making my living doing this specialized and worthwhile work. If your appeal has very recently been denied either in your State's highest court, or in a United States Circuit Court of Appeals, you may be in that rare NINETY DAY window for a U.S. Supreme Court Petition. Original and 40 printed, bound copies of a perfected Petition must be filed, or postmarked, before midnight, the 90th day.

There's no leeway, and no time to waste, getting started. Or, you may be in a lower court, working your way up to the opening of that window.
