Professor Joel Johnson, "Supreme Court Cases of Interest" Spring 2023 -- ABA Criminal Justice Magazine
Professor Joel S. Johnson's spring 2023 installment of his quarterly column "Supreme Court Cases of Interest" is published in the ABA Criminal Justice Magazine. The column previews pending Supreme Court criminal law and procedure cases.
From Supreme Court Cases of Interest:
Since our last update, the Supreme Court has added five new cases to its criminal docket. The headliner in that set of cases to be argued this spring is Counterman v. Colorado, which provides an opportunity for the Court to resolve a longstanding question about the level of mens rea needed to establish that a statement is a “true threat” unprotected by the First Amendment. Notably, no case in the new group presents a Fourth Amendment question, continuing a two-term absence of any such case on the docket.
