Supreme Court, 9-0, Overturns Ninth Circuit Decision: US v. Sineneng-Smith

US v. Sineneng-Smith

"[W]e ... hold that the appeals panel departed so drastically from the principle of party presentation as to constitute an abuse of discretion. We therefore vacate the Ninth Circuit’s judgment and remand the case for an adjudication of the appeal attuned to the case shaped by the parties rather than the case designed by the appeals panel."
