In some courts (I dont know the practice of the 2d Cir) it only takes one judge who wants a response for the Court to order the other side to respond. So requesting a response might mean nothing.Wallach tweeted something yesterday where he indicated that 30 days will be a telling time frame. If the court is going to deny the request, it will likely happen in about 30 days. If they are going to consider granting the request, then they will likely instruct the NFL to file a response to Olson's petition. So if we hear something about the NFL being asked to submit a brief, then that is a good sign that the judges, probably 4 at least, are seriously considering granting the request. Just because the NFL may be asked to respond doesn't mean they are going to accept the case, but it is a good sign that they are considering it.
