Mathis v. United States
United States Supreme Court; Case No. 15-6092
Decision below 786 F.3d 1068 (8th Cir. May 12, 2015).
Shepherd documents are not reliable indicators of whether a particular statutory alternative is a "means" or an "element." State law is a reliable and accessible indicator of statutory divisibility. In the rare case where state law is inconclusive, courts must apply a presumption of indivisibility.
