Case Blog: Henderson v. United States

The Supreme Court is on a roll with criminal decisions this week.  Here is the latest and greatest:

Henderson v. United States (6-3 Opinion by Justice Breyer on February 20, 2013. Dissent by Justice Scalia with Justices Thomas and Alito joining) Summary: The Court reversed and remanded the decision of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit. In a decision written by Justice Breyer, the Court held that “regardless of whether a legal question was settled or unsettled at the time of trial, an error is ‘plain’ within the meaning of Rule 52(b) so long as the error was plain at the time of appellate review.”
