Today at SCOTUS – 12/4/2013
Today, the Supreme Court hears arguments in a case about the rights of citizens of public roads cutting through military installations:
(1) US v. Apel [see our preview at http://www.law.cornell.edu/supct/cert/12-1038]
- Can 18 U.S.C. § 1382, which prohibits a person from reentering a military installation after a commanding officer has ordered him not to reenter, be enforced on a portion of a military installation that is subject to a public roadway easement?
The other case scheduled for today, Township of Mount Holly v. Mount Holly Garden Citizens in Action, Inc., settled. You can nevertheless read our preview at http://www.law.cornell.edu/supct/cert/11-1507, and some thoughts on the settlement here.
