This morning the Court issued opinions in Johnson v. United States, holding that increasing sentences under the residual clause of the Armed Career Criminal Act violates the Constitution, and Obergefell v. Hodges, holding that states must allow same-sex couples to marry.
Lyle reported on the decision in Obergefell and Amy covered it in “Plain English.” Andrew provided a round-up of other news coverage. Mark reported on the scene inside the Courtroom.
Rory Little will report on the decision in Johnson.
We are also hosting a “snap” symposium on Obergefell. When a contributor’s name is highlighted, his or her post has been published.
