Issue: (1) Whether, where a foreign nation has refused to make payments to holders of its defaulted debt instruments, a federal court can coerce payment by issuing an injunction preventing a non-party trustee from paying non-party holders of the sovereign’s non-defaulted debt instruments unless the sovereign also satisfies in full the claims of the defaulted debt holders, thereby imposing otherwise non-existent conditions on the payment rights of the non-parties and creating a grave risk of default; (2) whether the Fifth Amendment’s prohibitions against government deprivations and takings of private property solely for the purpose of conferring a private benefit bar a federal court from granting equitable relief that conditions the payment rights of the non-party, non-defaulted debt holders on the sovereign’s payment of overdue sums to parties who are holders of the defaulted debt; and (3) whether non-party holders of debt instruments have standing to appeal the district court’s entry of an order that prohibits payments on those specific debt instruments — and no others — until the debtor has satisfied unrelated overdue payments on other debt instruments.

Announcement of opinions for Thursday, June 17 - SCOTUSblog
We will be live blogging on Thursday, June 17, as the court releases one or more opinions in argued cases from...
Monday's decision rejecting sentence reductions for low-level crack-cocaine offenders may have been unanimous, but @ekownyankah writes that there is far more going on than the ruling's dry textual analysis might indicate. Read his incisive analysis here:
After decades, Congress reduced the racially unjust crack/cocaine disparity... raising amounts required for prison time. Why would Congress have left small time dealers to rot in prison for decades?
My thoughts on SCOTUS's ruling in Terry v. United States:https://www.scotusblog.com/2021/06/unanimous-ruling-on-crack-cocaine-disparity-is-heavy-on-text-light-on-history/
