Without, apparently, having filed a request, it seems that Indiana has received an extension to file its (requested) response to Smylie's cert. petition. It's now due September 21st--5 days before the case is scheduled for conference. Here is the link to the docket.
Just another day at the Attorney General's office, I guess. I sure wouldn't let a SCOTUS deadline pass without filing something. Does anyone know if you can just call up the clerk and say, "Hey, howz about another 30 days on that thing your bosses asked for?"
