|17-6075||11th Cir.||Not Argued||Jan 8, 2018||n/a||Per Curiam||OT 2017|
Holding: On the unusual facts of this case, the court of appeals should not have rested its review of Keith Tharpe’s application for a certificate of appealability on the ground that it was indisputable among reasonable jurists that Barney Gattie’s service on the jury did not prejudice Tharpe.
Judgment: Vacated and remanded in a per curiam opinion on January 8, 2018. Justice Thomas filed a dissenting opinion, in which Justices Alito and Gorsuch joined.

End of an era: Here is NBC News prez Noah Oppenheim's memo about Pete Williams' plan to retire this summer
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).
