U.S. Supreme Court opinions: April 22

The United States Supreme Court has issued three new opinions.

In Jones v. Mississippi, the court held that a discretionary sentencing system is both constitutionally necessary and constitutionally sufficient to sentence a defendant who committed a homicide when he or she was under 18 to life without parole; a separate factual finding of permanent incorrigibility is not required.

In Carr v. Saul the court held that principles of issue-exhaustion do not require Social Security disability claimants to argue at the agency level that the administrative law judges hearing their disability claims were unconstitutionally appointed.
