Supreme Court Decisions 6-21-24

Fischer v. United States: This case examines whether the obstruction charges used against January 6 participants are overly broad. Specifically, the court is considering if actions not directly related to congressional inquiries or investigations can be charged under 18 U.S.C. § 1512(c). The outcome could significantly impact how obstruction charges are applied in future cases​.

Loper Bright Enterprises v. Raimondo: This case challenges the Chevron deference, a doctrine that allows courts to defer to administrative agencies’ interpretations of ambiguous statutes. If overturned or limited, it could reduce the power of federal agencies in interpreting laws, shifting more interpretative authority back to the courts​.

Moody v. NetChoice: This case addresses the issue of censorship on the internet. It focuses on whether states can impose regulations on social media companies to prevent them from censoring user content. The decision will have broad implications for free speech and state regulation of tech companies​.

Moyle v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization: This case revisits abortion rights and state powers post-Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization. The court will decide on the extent to which states can regulate or restrict abortion access, which could further redefine reproductive rights in the U.S.​.

Murthy v. Missouri: This case involves censorship on social media and whether government officials can pressure social media companies to remove content. The decision could set new precedents for government influence over private companies and free speech online​​.

Trump v. Vance: This case deals with presidential immunity and whether a sitting or former president can be subject to state criminal subpoenas. The ruling will clarify the extent of presidential immunity and could impact ongoing and future investigations involving former President Trump​.

United States v. Rahimi: This case involves gun rights and addresses whether certain gun control measures, such as those involving domestic violence restraining orders, are constitutional under the Second Amendment. The decision could impact the legality of various gun control laws nationwide​​.
