United States Supreme Court Denies Petition for Certiorari in The Shipping Corporation of India, Ltd. v. Jaldhi Overseas Pte Ltd.
On March 22, 2010, the United States Supreme Court issued a Summary Order in The Shipping Corporation of India, Ltd. v. Jaldhi Overseas Pte Ltd., denying Shipping Corporation of India, Ltd.'s ("SCI") petition for a writ of certiorari. The Court's Order also grants the motion of the Maritime Law Association ("MLA") for leave to file a brief as amicus curiae. Assumedly, the MLA brief was considered by the justices in reaching their decision.
Under Supreme Court Rule 44, SCI may file a petition for rehearing of the Order denying its petition for a writ of certiorari within twenty-five (25) days of the Order, or by Friday, April 16, 2010. The Supreme Court Rules specify that the grounds for rehearing must be limited to "intervening circumstances of a substantial or controlling effect or to other substantial grounds not previously presented." The Court's Rules do not permit the filing of any response to a petition for rehearing or any brief for an amicus curiae in support of or in opposition to the petition. Because of the limited grounds permitted for rehearing, such petitions are very rarely, if ever, granted by the Court.
