Solicitor General Paul D. Clement has asked the clerk of the Supreme Court to give his office an extension until March 7 to file the government's response to Nutraceutical Corp.'s petition for writ of certiorari, Nutraceutical attorney Jonathan Emord tells "The Tan Sheet" in a Feb. 1 e-mail. "This is significant. Of approximately 10,000 cert petitions filed within the Court, the Solicitor General's office responds to but a fraction of these," Emord writes. The Department of Justice "uses criteria for assessing cert worthiness and files responses only to those petitions that they think may be granted by the Court," he explains.
