Just in: Wednesday will be the next Supreme Court opinion day.
SCOTUS sides with two doctors who challenged their convictions for unlawfully prescribing opioids. The doctors said they had a good-faith belief that they were prescribing for legitimate medical purposes. The government argued for an objective, not subjective, standard.
The Supreme Court clarifies how district courts should assess prisoners' requests for reduced sentences under the First Step Act. SCOTUS rules that district courts may consider new developments (such as evidence of a prisoner's rehabilitation or intervening changes in the law).
SCOTUS sides with a high school football coach in a First Amendment case about prayer at the 50-yard-line. In a 6-3 ruling, SCOTUS says the public school district violated the coach's free speech and free exercise rights when it barred him from praying on the field after games.
