|16-460||D.C.||Nov 1, 2017||Jan 22, 2018||5-4||Ginsburg||OT 2017|
Holding: In the instruction in 28 U.S.C. § 1367(d), which provides that the “period of limitations for” refiling in state court a state claim dismissed along with related federal claims by a federal district court exercising supplemental jurisdiction, “shall be tolled while the claim is pending [in federal court] and for a period of 30 days after it is dismissed unless State law provides for a longer tolling period,” to “toll” a state-law statute-of-limitations period means to hold it in abeyance, i.e., to stop the clock.
Judgment: Reversed and remanded, 5-4, in an opinion by Justice Ginsburg on January 22, 2018. Justice Gorsuch filed a dissenting opinion, in which Justices Kennedy, Thomas and Alito joined.

In 2019, the Supreme Court limited the scope of a federal law that bans people convicted of felonies from having a gun. Up this morning at the court: back-to-back cases that will decide how many felon-in-possession convictions will need new trials or pleas under that 2019 ruling.
NEW: SCOTUS adds one new case to its docket for next term: Hemphill v. New York, a criminal-procedure case about the interaction between hearsay rules and the right of defendants to confront witnesses against them. Still no action on major petitions involving guns and abortion.
The court will release orders at 9:30 a.m. EDT followed by oral argument in two cases.
