Supreme Court Issues Three Opinions

All three decisions issued unanimously. 

Wednesday saw the Supreme Court issue three unanimous decisions on the cases of Intel Corp. Investment Policy Comm. v. Sulyma, Holguin-Hernandez v. United States, and Shular v. United States.

Intel Corp. Investment Policy Comm. v. Sulyma ruled that if a plaintiff sues a retirement plan’s fiduciaries, it can not be presumed that the plaintiff has “actual knowledge” of information contained in disclosures that they received but did not read or recall reading. 

The case of Holguin-Hernandez v. United States was ruled in favor of the defendant, stating that they are not required to formally object to their sentence to be able to later challenge the length of the sentence during an appeal.

Lastly, the Justices of the Court decided in Shular v. United States that under the Armed Career Criminal Act, a state drug offense is not required to match a generic analog offense to be considered a “serious drug offense” under the law.  

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For the Justices of the Court to have wisdom as they consider their rulings in future cases.
  • That God would lead the Court to the best cases to hear in the future. 
  • For greater justice to be available to all as a result of these rulings.
