Coming This Week: White Collared’s Supreme Court 2013 Preview

Posted On Monday, September 30, 2013

Ah, October.

The leaves change color.  The baseball postseason kicks into full gear (at least for those teams not stupid enough to give Delmon Young almost 300 plate appearances.  But I’m not bitter.  Really, I’m not.)  And a week from today, the Supreme Court begins to hear cases (or as Chief Justice Roberts might put it, “call balls and strikes”) in its 2013 Term.

Each year, the Nine grapple with the most important legal issues of our day, and this term will be no exception.  Over the next three days, White Collared will be previewing three of the cases the Court will hear this term, all of which could affect the rights of white-collar criminal defendants.  Here’s a look at what’s in store for the rest of the week:

  • Tuesday: Show Me My Money—Kaley v. United States and the Battle Over Asset Freezes
  • Wednesday: Don’t Try This at Home, Kids—Carol Bond, Domestic Disputes and the Limits of Congressional Authority
  • Thursday: Not In My House!—The Court Revisits Consent Searches of Jointly Held Property

So come back this week and let White Collared get you ready for the 2013 Term at the Supreme Court.
