Corner Post, Inc. v. Board of Governors (22-1008)

Trump v. United States (23-939)
The nature of Presidential power entitles a former President to absolute immunity from criminal prosecution for actions within his conclusive and preclusive constitutional authority; he is also entitled to at least presumptive immunity from prosecution for all his official acts; there is no immunity for unofficial acts.

Fischer v. United States (23-5572)
To prove a violation of 18 U. S.

Loper Bright Enterprises v. Raimondo (22-451)
The Administrative Procedure Act requires courts to exercise their independent judgment in deciding whether an agency has acted within its statutory authority, and courts may not defer to an agency interpretation of the law simply because a statute is ambiguous; Chevron U. S. A. Inc. v. Natural Resources Defense Council, Inc., 467 U. S. 837, is overruled.
