The petition of the day is:

17-270
Disclosure: Vinson & Elkins LLP, whose attorneys contribute to this blog in various capacities, is among the counsel to the petitioner in this case.

Issue: Whether, under the Speedy Trial Act, time engaged in a plea negotiation that does not result in a finalized plea agreement is automatically excludable as “other proceedings concerning the defendant” under 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(1), as four circuits hold; or whether such time is excludable only if the district court makes case-specific “ends of justice” findings under 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(7), as four other circuits hold.
