A Writ of Certiorari has been filed to the Supreme Court of the United States, asking the highest court to hear Vasquez v. Foxx, a sex offender case out of the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals.

The Vasquez case, which was previously reported on here. Upheld the eviction of two Illinois men who were required to register as sex offenders from their homes, because of a law passed after their offense date which restricted them from living within 500 feet of certain facilities, such as home day cares.

The SCOTUS receives approximately 8000 such Writs per year, asking them to hear cases across the US. They select approximately 1% to hear and consider.
