|19-8709||11th Cir.||Apr 20, 2021||Jun 14, 2021||9-0||Kavanaugh||OT 2020|
Holding: In felon-in-possession cases under 18 U.S.C. § 922(g)(1), an error under Rehaif v. United States is not a basis for plain-error relief unless the defendant first makes a sufficient argument or representation on appeal that he would have presented evidence at trial that he did not in fact know he was a felon.
Judgment: Affirmed, 9-0, in an opinion by Justice Kavanaugh on June 14, 2021. Justice Sotomayor filed a concurring opinion.

|Jul 16 2021||JUDGMENT ISSUED.|
The Supreme Court sides with Sen. Ted Cruz in his First Amendment challenge to a federal campaign-finance law that limits how and when candidates can recoup loans that they make to their own campaigns. The vote is 6-3 along ideological lines.
In an immigration case, SCOTUS rules 5-4 that federal courts do NOT have jurisdiction to review certain executive-branch factual findings that determine whether non-citizens are eligible for "adjustment of status." Those findings can dictate whether a person is deported.
SCOTUS agrees to take up two new cases: Jones v. Hendrix (a habeas corpus case) and SEC v. Cochran (a case about the power of district courts to hear challenges to the constitutionality of the SEC's administrative law proceedings).
