Petition in Rose denied
I hadn't seen the order list before, but now I have. The etition for certiorari that I filed in Rose was indeed denied. So I guess that this is a conflict that will persist for a while longer; in some states, the Constitution is deemed to prevent child witnesses from testifying attrial from behind a screen, and in some states it isn't. Perhaps the Court thought the conflict was not yet deep enough, but it's impossible to know. I hope that befoer too long goes by they do take a case on this issue.
