Gundy v. United States (17-6086)
The Second Circuit’s judgment that 34 U. S. C. §20913(d)—which requires the Attorney General to apply the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act’s registration requirements as soon as feasible to offenders convicted before the statute’s enactment—is not an unconstitutional delegation of legislative authority is affirmed.

McDonough v. Smith (18-485)
The statute of limitations for McDonough’s 42 U. S. C. §1983 fabricated-evidence claim against his prosecutor began to run when the criminal proceedings against him terminated in his favor—that is, when he was acquitted at the end of his second trial.

American Legion v. American Humanist Assn. (17-1717)
The Bladensburg Cross does not violate the Establishment Clause.

PDR Network, LLC v. Carlton Harris Chiropractic, Inc. (17-1705)
The extent to which a 2006 FCC Order interpreting the term “unsolicited advertisement” binds lower courts may depend on the resolution of two preliminary questions that the Fourth Circuit should address in the first instance: (1) whether the Order is the equivalent of a legislative rule, which has the force and effect of law, or an interpretative rule, which does not; and (2) whether petitioners had a “prior” and “adequate” opportunity to seek judicial review of the Order.

Salmon P. Chase Greenback

Salmon P. Chase served as Secretary of the Treasury under President Abraham Lincoln during the Civil War and would later be appointed Chief Justice in 1864. His portrait appears on the first one dollar bill in 1862, popularly known as a “greenback” due to its color. “I had some handsome pictures put on them…” Chase later recalled, “and as I like to be among the people...and as the engravers thought me rather good looking, I told them they might put me on the end of the one-dollar bills.”
