Recent Decisions

March 21, 2018
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.

March 20, 2018
Cyan, Inc. v. Beaver County Employees Retirement Fund (15-1439)

Before they were Justices…

A star on the University of Colorado’s football team where he earned the nickname “Whizzer” White, Byron R. White was also a member of the varsity basketball and baseball teams. In 1938, he wore this warm-up jacket when his basketball team played in the inaugural National Invitation Tournament (NIT) in Madison Square Garden. When appointed to the Supreme Court in 1962, White was serving as the Deputy Attorney General of the United States.
