John Ellwood reviews the rosters on Monday.

It Good to be the government. This is the lesson learned from last week’s orders, when the Supreme Court decided to review four cases, and the attorney general wasThe upper part” in a three. Other re-recorded petitions were not so fortunate. The court rejected the testimony in two parts, although the petitioners in both received consolation awards: Judge Neil Görüç, joined by Judges Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Cagan, presented a decision respecting the refusal (complete with Photo!) In the The fourth amendment is the curtilage conditionJudge Clarence Thomas lodged an objection to the denial in Oklahoma Tax Case.

Thankfully it’s a light rereading week. There is only one new listing: Woodard v. The United States, 20-5758. Case 18 includes USC § 924 (c), which imposes a mandatory minimum penalty for the use of a firearm during and in relation to a violent or drug-trafficking crime. At the time of Damon Woodard’s conviction, the law imposed a mandatory 5-year sentence for the first offense; A mandatory sentence for 20 consecutive years. “[i]N case [a] The second or subsequent conviction. ” A deal against the United States, The Supreme Court held that if a person is charged with two or more of these crimes in the same indictment, the second, third or fourth crime is a “second or subsequent conviction,” and each of them will add an additional consecutive sentence for at least 20 years. The mandatory minimum clauses “stack” was quickly added, resulting in some formidable sentences.

In 2018, Congress amended Section 924 (c) as part of the First Step Act in what it described as “clarification,” replacing the language for “second or subsequent condemnation” with improving any “violation of this subsection that occurs after pre-conviction under this subsection has become final.” Woodard asks the court to “reconsider and retract.” Deal. “It is a positive sign to Woodard that the case has been re-examined by the court; the relists are very positively associated with granting the review. But it is a very bad sign that the government waived its right to respond and the court did not request a response; the court did not agree without demanding a response in recent memory. This leads me to a conclusion. That this may be a material “opposition from denial”.

Usually, that will be it. But since people read this column to get a preview of the grants and it’s a light week, I thought it (at risk Task crawlingI would like to look at some of the unrecorded cases that seem to me to be a potential grant.

Carr versus Saul, 19-1442And and Davis in. Saul, 20-105Both involve an issue of particular interest given the Court’s recent interest in Separation From Powers: Whether the plaintiff seeking disability benefits under the Social Security Law loses the appointment clause to challenge the appointment of the administrative law judge who oversees his case by failing to file this appeal during the administrative procedures. The Government Acknowledges There is a circulating conflict on this issue and he says that both cases are “appropriate means” to resolve the conflict. But “[b]ecause the petition … at Carr It was submitted first, “says the government,” The court may wish to approve and comment on this petition [Davis] Pending adjudication. ”We will soon find out what the court thinks.

That’s all for now. Stay Safe!
