NOW v. Scheidler case documentsToday in League HistoryJanuary 28, 2002—League Director Joe Scheidler and his co-defendants, Tim Murphy and Andy Scholberg, file a petition of certiorari in U.S. Supreme Court, asking the Court to hear the NOW v. Scheidler case and reverse the 7th Circuit Court’s 1998 decision declaring him a federal racketeer. Only about 1% of all cases are granted certiorari in any given term, but Joe’s petition would be granted, ultimatley leading to his vindication in the high court.
