BREAKING: Supreme Court, 5-4, Says 'Crime of Violence' Definition is Void for Vagueness - Sessions v. Dimaya

Sessions v. Dimaya - "Three Terms ago, in Johnson v. United States, this Court held that part of a federal law’s definition of “violent felony” was impermissibly vague. See 576 U. S. ___ (2015). The question in this case is whether a similarly worded clause in a statute’s definition of “crime of violence” suffers from the same constitutional defect. Adhering to our analysis in Johnson, we hold that it does."
