Recent Decisions


June 23, 2021
         
Lange v. California (20-18)
Under the Fourth Amendment, pursuit of a fleeing misdemeanor suspect does not always or categorically qualify as an exigent circumstance justifying a warrantless entry into a home.

         
Collins v. Yellen (19-422)
Because the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) did not exceed its authority under the Housing and Economic Recovery Act of 2008 as a conservator of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the anti-injunction provisions of the Recovery Act bar the statutory claim brought by shareholders of those entities; the Recovery Act’s structure, which restricts the President’s power to remove the FHFA Director, violates the separation of powers.

         
Mahanoy Area School Dist. v. B. L. (20-255)
The school district’s decision to suspend student B. L. from the cheerleading team for posting to social media (outside of school hours and away from the school’s campus) vulgar language and gestures critical of the school violates the First Amendment.

         
Cedar Point Nursery v. Hassid (20-107)
A California regulation granting labor organizations a “right to take access” to an agricultural employer’s property to solicit support for unionization constitutes a per se physical taking.

And the Award Goes To…


In 1961, the Touchdown Club of Washington, D.C. established the “Mr. Sam Award,” named after Speaker of the House Sam Rayburn, who was a known sports enthusiast. The award was presented annually to a government figure who fostered and contributed to sports. Newly appointed Associate Justice Byron R. “Whizzer” White was awarded the “Mr. Sam Award” in late 1962 for his college and NFL football careers. Justice White played football, basketball, and baseball for the University of Colorado, and played football professionally for the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Detroit Lions before joining the Court.
