Dunn v. Madison (17-193) (Per Curiam)
The Eleventh Circuit erred in granting habeas relief where the state court’s determination—that respondent was competent to be executed because he recognized that he would be put to death as punishment for the murder he was found to have committed—was not an unreasonable application of this Court’s case law nor an unreasonable assessment of the evidence before it.

Kernan v. Cuero (16-1468) (Per Curiam)
Federal law as interpreted by this Court did not clearly establish that the state court in this case was required to impose the lower sentence that respondent would have received under a criminal plea agreement had the State not been permitted to amend the complaint.

Charles Evans Hughes Loving Cup

Prior to serving on the Supreme Court, Charles Evans Hughes served as a two-term governor of the state of New York from 1906 to 1910. Upon his retirement, Hughes’s military staff presented him with a Tiffany silver loving cup inscribed, “To the Hon. Charles Evans Hughes, Governor of the State of New York, from his military staff, upon the occasion of his retirement from office, October 1910.” Today, the loving cup is on exhibit along with other collection items in the Natalie Cornell Rehnquist Dining Room.
