Recent Decisions

Ayestas v. Davis (16-6795)
The District Court’s denial of petitioner’s request for funding for “reasonably necessary” services of experts, investigators, and the like, 18 U. S. C. §3599(f), to develop his claim that both his trial and state habeas counsel were ineffective was a judicial decision subject to appellate review under the standard jurisdictional provisions; the Fifth Circuit did not apply the correct legal standard in affirming the denial of that request.

Marinello v. United States (16-1144)
To convict a defendant under 26 U. S. C. §7212(a)—which forbids “corruptly or by force or threats of force . . . obstruct[ing] or imped[ing], or endeavor[ing] to obstruct or impede, the due administration of [the Internal Revenue Code]”—the Government must prove the defendant was aware of a pending tax-related proceeding, such as a particular investigation or audit, or could reasonably foresee that such a proceeding would commence.

President George Washington and Justice William Cushing

In 1789, William Cushing was among the first five Associate Justices appointed to the newly formed Supreme Court by President George Washington. Later, in 1796, Washington nominated Cushing again, this time as Chief Justice. Although Cushing’s appointment was confirmed, he declined the post citing ill health and continued to serve as an Associate Justice. Cushing’s twenty-year tenure, the longest of Washington’s original appointments, provided the final link between the John Jay Court and the John Marshall Court.
