Brown v. United States

Petition granted, judgment vacated, and case remanded for further consideration in light of United States v. Naylor on April 16, 2018.
Docket No. Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
17-6344 N/A N/A N/A N/A OT 2017

Issues: (1) Whether a certificate of appealability should be issued to determine whether a predicate conviction that requires merely “physical force that overcomes reasonable resistance” satisfies the force clause of the Armed Career Criminals Act; and (2) whether a certificate of appealability should be issued to determine whether a Missouri burglary conviction from 1969 is a violent felony because, like the contemporary Missouri burglary statute, it is a fatally overbroad and indivisible statute.
