Campos-Chaves v. Garland (June 14, 2024)

To rescind an in absentia removal order on the ground that the alien did not receive notice in accordance with paragraph (1) or (2) of 8 U.S.C. §1229(a), the alien must show that he did not receive notice under either paragraph for the hearing at which the alien was absent and ordered removed.

United States Trustee v. John Q. Hammons Fall 2006, LLC (June 14, 2024)

When a statute violated the Bankruptcy Clause’s uniformity requirement because it permitted different fees for Chapter 11 debtors depending on the district where their case was filed, the appropriate remedy is prospective parity.

Garland v. Cargill (June 14, 2024)

A bump stock—an accessory for a semiautomatic rifle that allows the shooter to rapidly reengage the trigger (and therefore achieve a high rate of fire)—does not convert the rifle into a “machinegun.”

Vidal v. Elster (June 13, 2024)

The Lanham Act prohibition on registering a trademark that consists of or comprises a name identifying a particular living person without their consent does not violate the First Amendment.

FDA v. Alliance for Hippocratic Medicine (June 13, 2024)

Sincere legal, moral, ideological, and policy objections to elective abortion and to the FDA’s relaxed regulation of an abortion drug alone do not establish a justiciable case or controversy in federal court.
