|16-529||10th Cir.||Apr 18, 2017||Jun 5, 2017||9-0||Sotomayor||OT 2016|
Holding: Because disgorgement sought by the Securities and Exchange Commission operates as a penalty under 28 U.S.C. § 2462, in that it is imposed by the courts as a consequence for violating public laws and for punitive purposes, any claim for disgorgement in an SEC enforcement action must be commenced within five years of the date the claim accrued.
Judgment: Reversed, 9-0, in an opinion by Justice Sotomayor on June 5, 2017.

#SCOTUS grants one new case, sets it for argument in April: Oklahoma v. Castro-Huerta, on whether a state has authority to prosecute non-Indians who commit crimes against Indians in Indian country.
