All cases listed in the Friday order were accepted. The accepted cases are:

Of special note is

FBI V. Fikre

a case brought against the government by an Oregon man claiming that he has been put back on “No-Fly List”, even though officials had agreed to remove him. The FBI argued before a federal appeals court that the case is moot, as the FBI issued a declaration stating that Fikre will not be put back on the list “based on currently available information.” However, the appeals court found that the case was not moot and that Fikre had the right to continue the case under the voluntary cessation doctrine, as the FBI had neither admitted to wrongfully putting Fikre on the list nor made any policy changes.Another notable case is Corner Post, Inc. v. Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System

, which deals with when the legally mandated six-year statute of limitations on challenging a federal agency action begins to run. A truck stop in North Dakota wants to challenge the 2011 Federal Reserve Rule which caps credit card processing charges. While it has been more than six years since the issuance of the rule, the company that owns the trucks stop argues that the clock should start upon injury to the plaintiff party, as the company did not form until 2018.Finally, the court has decided to take up the controversial Texas and Florida Netchoice cases: Moody v. Netchoice

and Netchoice v. Paxton. The Netchoice cases concern the constitutionality of Florida and Texas state laws that regulate social media platforms’ ability to ban certain users and posts. Several social media conglomerates under the banners of industry groups Netchoice and the Computer and Communications Industry Association (CCIA) challenged the laws, claiming they violated the social media platforms’ right to free speech under the First Amendment of the Constitution.The Monday order was far lengthier, with only two cases being granted certiorari and over a hundred petitions of certiorari denied. The court granted dozens procedural orders to other ongoing cases. Ovante is a capital offense case, meaning the petitioner has been convicted of a capital crime and was sentenced to execution. Ayala Chapa is an appeal of a removal order issued during immigration court proceedings.
