Casey v. United States

Pending petition
Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
17-1251 1st Cir. TBD TBD TBD TBD TBD

Issue: Whether a court may grant a federal habeas petition collaterally challenging a sentence under Johnson v. United States, which held that a sentence enhanced under the “residual clause” of the Armed Career Criminal Act violated the Due Process Clause, when the sentencing judge never specified—and therefore the record is silent on—whether the petitioner’s original sentence was enhanced pursuant to the ACCA’s now-invalidated residual clause.
