Op-ed on Chief Justice’s statement regarding cy pres and other invitations from the Court

Linda Greenhouse had this interesting piece in the New York Times yesterday, about Chief Justice Roberts's "invitation" to cases challenging cy pres awards, as she describes the Chief Justice's statement (at p. 24 of the pdf) last week concerning the denial of the petiton for certiorari in Marek v. Lane–the cert petition about the cy pres settlement with Facebook, over its Beacon program. Greenhouse also talks about the Second Circut's recent order removing Judge Scheindlin from the challenge to New York City's stop-and-frisk policy and statements from other Justices noting issues that they would like to consider.
