Per SCOTUSBlog, the Court did not take any new cases from its 5/29 conference. The order list, however, does not include Kickapoo Traditional Tribe v. Texas. According to the docket sheet, the Court requested a response—after distributing the case for the 5/29 conference—from Texas in mid-May, due in June. So it appears that the Court will wait for another conference to make a cert-decision.
