Recent Decisions


June 22, 2018
         
Cox v. United States (16-1017)
Certiorari dismissed as improvidently granted.

         
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.
