Update to Circuit Split Watch (Cert Grant)

A Japanese baseball player, the Northern Mariana Islands, and Richard Posner in one case summary.

Today, the U.S. Supreme Court granted certiorari in Taniguchi v. Kan Pacific Saipan, Ltd. (10-1472), spotlighted earlier this year in my Circuit Split Watch column. The link to the Ninth Circuit decision has changed since original publication (current link is here). The case deals with costs awarded for "interpreters" and whether written and spoken translation work is covered.

SCOTUSblog has the briefs, linked here.
