October Term of the United States Supreme Court
This week the United States Supreme Court continues its October term. Look for the following cases:
- Tuesday, Oct. 15
- UTIER v. Financial Oversight and Management Board for Puerto Rico — whether the de facto officer doctrine allows for unconstitutionally appointed principal Officers of the United States to continue acting, leaving the party that challenges their appointment with an ongoing injury and without an appropriate relief.
- U.S. v. Aurelius Investment, LLC — whether members of Financial Oversight and Management Board for Puerto Rico are “Officers of the United States” within the meaning of the appointments clause of the United States Constitution.
- Aurelius Investment, LLC v. Puerto Rico — whether the de facto officer doctrine allows courts to deny meaningful relief to successful separation-of-powers challengers who are suffering ongoing injury at the hands of unconstitutionally appointed principal officers.
- Official Committee of Debtors v. Aurelius Investment, LLC — whether the appointments clause governs the appointment of members of the Financial Oversight and Management Board for Puerto Rico.
- Financial Oversight and Management Board for Puerto Rico v. Aurelius Investment, LLC — whether the appointments clause governs the appointment of members of the Financial Oversight and Management Board for Puerto Rico.
- Wednesday, Oct. 16
- Rotkiske v. Klemm — whether the “discovery rule” applies to toll the one-year statute of limitations under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.
- Mathena v. Malvo — whether the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit erred in concluding that a decision of the Supreme Court in Montgomery v. Louisiana, addressing whether a new constitutional rule announced in an earlier decision, Miller v. Alabama, applies retroactively on collateral review may properly be interpreted as modifying and substantively expanding the very rule whose retroactivity was in question.
- Kansas v. Garcia — whether Immigration Reform and Control Act expressly pre-empts the states from using any information entered on or appended to a federal Form I-9, including common information such as name, date of birth, and social security number, in a prosecution of any person (citizen or alien) when that same, commonly used information also appears in non-IRCA documents, such as state tax forms, leases, and credit applications; and (2) whether the Immigration Reform and Control Act impliedly preempts Kansas’ prosecution of respondents.
