SCOTUS for law students: Still deciding in July

Posted on Mon Nov 30th 2020 8:32 am by James Romoser

It’s not quite December yet, but the Supreme Court opens its December argument Monday morning with verbal arguments on two cases with far-reaching ramifications: Trump versus New. York, challenging President Donald Trump’s plan to expel people living in the country without authorization from the total population used to reallocate Congressional seats among states; and Van Buren v. United States, the court will for the first time consider the wide range of digital behaviors that may be criminalized under a federal law against hacking known as the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act. Our preview of Trump versus New York is here (and a symposium with writers on both sides is here). Our preview of Van Buren is here.
