The Supreme has not yet decided whether to grant cert for Pfizer Inc. v. Abdullahi et al. On October 7 the justices received a Supplemental brief of petitioner Pfizer Inc., and on October 13 papers were again DISTRIBUTED for Conference of October 19, 2009. This may have something to do with the Second Circuit's recent decision in Presbyterian Church of Sudan v. Talisman Energy, Inc., No. 07-0016.
