Oral arguments before the Supreme Court of the United States, presented by Oyez, a multimedia judicial archive at the IllinoisTech Chicago-Kent College of Law.
Terry v. United States
A case in which the Court held that pre-August 3, 2010, crack offenders sentenced under 21 U.S.C. § 841(b)(1)(C) do not have a “covered offense” under Section 404 of the First Step Act and thus are not eligible for sentence reduction.
PennEast Pipeline Co. v. New Jersey
A case in which the Court held that the Natural Gas Act delegates to Federal Energy Regulatory Commission certificate-holders the authority to exercise the federal government’s eminent-domain power to condemn land in which a state claims an interest, and that it abrogates state sovereign immunity in such cases.
Mahanoy Area School District v. B.L.
A case in which the Court held that the First Amendment limits but does not entirely prohibit regulation of off-campus student speech by public school officials.
HollyFrontier Cheyenne Refining LLC v. Renewable Fuels Association
A case in which the Court held that, in order to qualify for a hardship exemption under Section 7545(o)(9)(B)(i) of the Renewable Fuel Standards, a small refinery need not receive uninterrupted, continuous hardship exemptions for every year since 2011.
United States v. Palomar-Santiago
A case in which the Court will decide whether a defendant who has been charged with unlawful reentry into the United States after removal is automatically entitled to the defense of invalid removal if he was removed for a crime that would not be considered a removable offense under current law in that circuit.
Guam v. United States
A case in which the Court will decide whether Guam or the Navy is financially responsible for the environmental hazards arising from the Navy’s landfill on the island of Guam, known as the Ordot Dump.
I’m not a law student, just an admirer of the Supreme Court. I love hearing the arguments back and forth. This podcast is educational, and shows that these cases are more complex than just a binary choice. Some very interesting questions to think about are raised.
This podcast is great it is a beautiful thing that we can listen to the Supreme Court while we slowly drift to sleep
Why do so many of the arguments restart over and over again in the middle of the audio?
