Moody v. NetChoice, LLC (July 1, 2024)

The First Amendment offers protection when an entity engaging in expressive activity, including compiling and curating others’ speech, is directed to accommodate messages it would prefer to exclude. Also, a state may not interfere with private actors’ speech to advance its own vision of ideological balance.

Corner Post, Inc. v. Board of Governors (July 1, 2024)

An Administrative Procedure Act claim does not accrue for the purposes of the six-year statute of limitations that applies to suits against the United States until the plaintiff is injured by final agency action.

Trump v. United States (July 1, 2024)

Under our constitutional structure of separated powers, the nature of Presidential power entitles a former President to absolute immunity from criminal prosecution for actions within his conclusive and preclusive constitutional authority. And he is entitled to at least presumptive immunity from prosecution for all his official acts. There is no immunity for unofficial acts.

Loper Bright Enterprises v. Raimondo (June 28, 2024)

Courts must exercise their independent judgment in deciding whether an agency has acted within its statutory authority. Courts may not defer to an agency interpretation of the law simply because a statute is ambiguous.
