4-"will either deny the appeal himself and affirm the appeals court judgment or will bring the cert. memo before the other justices and debate whether the case should be heard. In order for the case to be heard, four justices must agree to hear the case.
5-"This is known as the Rule of Four. If four justices vote to hear the case, then it is placed onto the court’s docket and the parties and their attorney’s are notified that the Supreme Court agrees to hear the case.
6- "The court will typically grantthe petitions of cases that are exceptionally unique and that present an issue of law that would be considered far-reaching throughout the United States.
