US Supreme Court grants cert. in 2 cases

Via Scotusblog, the United States Supreme Court granted certiorari in two new cases today.  Nken v. Mukasey will address the standard for barring deportation pening judicial review of an alien's plea for asylum or other relief from being deported.  In U.S. v. Denedo will address whether a former service member whose conviction in a military court has become final may nevertheless challenge the verdict within the military appeals court system.
Last week the United States Supreme Court heard oral argument in Bell v. Kelly.  Today the Court dismissed the case after finding that cert. had been improvidently granted.  The case concerned the degree of deference that federal habeas coruts must give to state court findings.
