Recent Decisions


June 18, 2018
         
Benisek v. Lamone (17-333) (Per Curiam)
Because the balance of equities and the public interest tilt against the preliminary injunction motion of plaintiffs claiming that a Maryland congressional district was gerrymandered to retaliate against them for their political views, the District Court did not abuse its discretion in denying the motion.

         
Rosales-Mireles v. United States (16-9493)
A miscalculation of a Federal Guidelines sentencing range that has been determined to be plain and to affect a defendant’s substantial rights calls for a court of appeals to exercise its discretion under Federal Rule of Criminal Procedure 52(b) to vacate the defendant’s sentence in the ordinary case.

         
Chavez-Meza v. United States (17-5639)
Because the record in this case demonstrates that the judge had a reasoned basis for his decision, the judge’s explanation for reducing, under 18 U. S. C. §3582(c)(2), petitioner’s sentence to the middle rather than the bottom of the amended Federal Guidelines range was adequate.

         
Lozman v. Riviera Beach (17-21)
The existence of probable cause for Lozman’s arrest for disrupting a city council meeting does not bar his First Amendment retaliatory arrest claim under the circumstances of this case.

         
Gill v. Whitford (16-1161)
Plaintiffs—Wisconsin Democratic voters who rested their claim of unconstitutional partisan gerrymandering on statewide injury—have failed to demonstrate Article III standing.
