Alderman v. United States

Petition for certiorari denied on January 10, 2011
Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
09-1555 9th Cir. N/A N/A N/A N/A OT 2010

Issue: Whether Scarborough v. United States (1977) recognizes a distinct Commerce Clause authority, beyond the three categories recognized in United States v. Lopez (1995), United States v. Morrison (2000), and Gonzales v. Raich (2005), such that a federal statute which “cannot be justified as a regulation of the channels of commerce, as a protection of the instrumentalities of commerce, or as a regulation of intrastate activity that substantially affects interstate commerce,” may be sustained based on a “minimal nexus” between the activity regulated and interstate commerce.
