Recent Decisions

January 15, 2019
New Prime Inc. v. Oliveira (17-340)
A court should determine whether the Federal Arbitration Act’s §1 exclusion for disputes involving the “contracts of employment” of certain transportation workers applies before ordering arbitration; here, truck driver Oliveira’s independent contractor operating agreement with New Prime falls within that exception.

Stokeling v. United States (17-5554)
The Armed Career Criminal Act’s elements clause encompasses a robbery offense that, like Florida’s law, requires the criminal to overcome the victim’s resistance.

January 08, 2019
Henry Schein, Inc. v. Archer & White Sales, Inc. (17-1272)
The “wholly groundless” exception to the general rule that courts must enforce contracts that delegate threshold arbitrability questions to an arbitrator, not a court, is inconsistent with the Federal Arbitration Act and this Court’s precedent.

Culbertson v. Berryhill (17-773)
The Social Security Act’s fee cap of 25% of past-due benefits imposed on attorneys who successfully represent Title II benefit claimants in court proceedings applies only to fees for court representation and not to aggregate fees for both court and agency representation.

January 07, 2019
Shoop v. Hill (18-56)
Because Hill’s intellectual disability claim must be evaluated based solely on holdings of this Court that were clearly established at the time the state-court decisions were rendered, see 28 U. S. C. §2254(d)(1), the Sixth Circuit’s reliance on Moore v. Texas, 581 U. S. ___—which was handed down much later—was plainly improper.

Escondido v. Emmons (17-1660)
The Ninth Circuit failed to conduct the analysis required by this Court’s precedents in determining whether two Escondido police officers were entitled to qualified immunity.
