Issues: (1) Whether courts should defer under Chevron U.S.A., Inc. v. Natural Resources Defense Council, Inc. to an agency interpretation of federal law when the federal government affirmatively disavows Chevron deference; (2) whether the Chevron framework applies to statutes with criminal-law applications; and (3)whether, if a court determines that a statute with criminal-law applications is ambiguous, the rule of lenity requires the court to construe the statute in favor of the criminal defendant, notwithstanding a contrary federal agency construction.
