New SCOTUS Criminal Cases

The U.S. Supreme Court issued a short orders list after its Friday conference today. The Court took up three criminal cases for full briefing and argument.

United States v. Briggs, No. 19-108 and United States v. Collins, No. 19-184 are military cases involving the statute of limitations for rape under the Uniform Code of Military Justice.

Walker v. United States, No. 19-373, asks whether a Texas conviction for robbery can be a "violent felony" under the Armed Career Criminal Act when, at the time of Walker's prior conviction, that crime could be committed by theft plus reckless (not necessarily intentional) injury to another person.

A longer orders list with cases turned down and procedural orders will be released Monday.
