Issue: (1) Whether the Ninth Circuit erroneously failed to enforce Miller v. Alabama's requirement of individualized sentencing by substituting its own reading of California's juvenile sentencing statute for that of California state courts, which at the time of DeMola's sentencing had interpreted the statute as establishing a presumption of life-without-parole for juveniles convicted of special circumstances murder; and (2) whether Miller v. Alabama is retroactive on federal habeas review.

It's official: In the first-ever SCOTUS bracketology tournament, our readers have chosen CHIEF JUSTICE EARL WARREN as the greatest justice in history. The author of Brown v. Board, Loving v. Virginia, and Miranda v. Arizona defeated top-seeded John Marshall in the final round.
We've reached the final round of SCOTUS bracketology, and two illustrious chief justices are facing off for the championship. One wrote Marbury v. Madison. The other wrote Brown v. Board.

NEW: The Supreme Court will issue opinion(s?) next Thursday April 22. We’re still waiting on decisions in the ACA case and Fulton v. City of Philadelphia about religious liberty and LGBT rights.
