Orr v. United States
United States Supreme Court; Case No. 17-6577
On petition for a write of certiorari to the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit.
The circuit court split thwarts the Court's rationales in adopting the categorical approach. The Court should grant review to clarify whether Congress intended the ACCA to target purse snatching and other non-violent robberies. The Court should grant review to resolve inconsistencies in applying the categorical approach. The Court should grant review to clarify the "realistic probability" analysis.
