The petition of the day is:

16-999

Issue: Whether lower courts are bound by the rationale of Justice Sotomayor’s lone concurrence in Freeman v. United States – with which all other justices in Freeman expressly disagreed – on the theory that it is the “narrowest grounds” of a plurality opinion under Marks v. United States.
