Tuesday's criminal case before SCOTUS
Tomorrow morning, the Supreme Court will hear arguments in US v. Resendiz-Ponce, which asks whether the omission of an element of a criminal offense from a federal indictment can constitute harmless error. Basic previews of Resendiz-Ponce are available from summaries put together by folks at Cornell here and at Medill here.
Though I am not positive, I believe that oral argument in Resendiz-Ponce will be a showdown between
two one of my favorite SCOTUS advocates: Michael Dreeben for the government (as petitioners). I am already looking forward to reading the transcript tomorrow.
