November SCOTUS Arguments

The US Supreme Court has announced its calendar of oral arguments for November. Criminal cases include:

Nov. 5:  Bond v. United States, on the authority of Congress to make a federal case out of poisoning in order to implement a treaty, back for a second look.

Nov 12:  Rosemond v. United States, yet another case on sentencing for gun use in the course of a drug crime.

Also Nov. 12:  Burrage v. United States, a case on mens rea and causation when a drug dealer's product kills the consumer.

Nov. 13: Fernandez v. California, the latest episode in the continuing saga of police being allowed in by one occupant over the objection of another.

Hollywood has been criticized for making too many sequels lately, but it seems SCOTUS has caught the bug as well.
