Dalmazzi v. United States (16-961)
Certiorari dismissed as improvidently granted.

         
Currier v. Virginia (16-1348)
Because Currier consented to a severance of the multiple charges against him, his second trial and resulting conviction, following an acquittal at his first trial, did not violate the Double Jeopardy Clause.

         
Ortiz v. United States (16-1423)
Military Judge Mitchell’s simultaneous service on an Air Force appeals court and the Court of Military Commission Review violated neither 10 U. S. C. §973(b)(2)(A) nor the Appointments Clause.

         
WesternGeco LLC v. ION Geophysical Corp. (16-1011)
The focus of the Patent Act’s general damages provision, 35 U. S. C. §284, in a case involving infringement under §271(f)(2) is on the act of exporting components from the United States; therefore, WesternGeco’s award for lost profits was a permissible domestic application of §284, not an extraterritorial one.

         
Carpenter v. United States (16-402)
The Government’s acquisition of Carpenter’s cell-site records from his wireless carriers was a Fourth Amendment search; and the Government did not obtain a warrant supported by probable cause before acquiring those records.

Chief Justice William H. Rehnquist announced the retirement of Justice Lewis F. Powell, Jr., on the last day of the Court’s Term, June 26, 1987. The Chief Justice said: “Before we turn to the final announcement on today’s calendar, we wish to take note with great regret the retirement of Justice Lewis F. Powell as a member of the Court…Justice Powell came to the Court after an illustrious career of private practice and public service bespeaking the best traditions of the legal profession. He has now capped that career with fifteen years of able and devoted service as a Justice of this Court. We shall miss his wise counsel in our deliberations, but we look forward to being the continuing beneficiaries of his friendship.”
