Oh, Never Mind

The US Supreme Court will not decide whether retroactive application of the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act (SORNA) violates the Ex Post Facto Clause in the ungainly-named case of United States v. Juvenile Male, No. 09-940.

In that case, in 2007, the District Court ordered the juvenile sex offender to register until he turned 21.  On a leisurely appeal, the Ninth Circuit decided September 10, 2009 that was ex post facto, apparently unaware that no-longer-Juvenile Male was by then 22.


Oh, and federal courts, please figure out a better way to name your juvie cases.
