The petition of the day is:

17-952

Issue: Whether, when a juvenile is sentenced for murder and other violent crimes, the Eighth Amendment limits a judge to sentencing the juvenile to an aggregate term of years that allows a meaningful opportunity for release even though none of the separate sentences are cruel and unusual.
