The Supreme Court released three new opinions today and dismissed one hotly-anticipated case as improvidently granted.

Graham v. Florida- Held: The [Cruel and Unusual Punishment] Clause does not permit a juvenile offender to be sentenced to life in prison without parole for a nonhomicide crime.

Abbott v. Abbott- Held: A parent has a right of custody under the [Hague] Convention by reason of that parent’s ne exeat right.

United States v. Comstock- Held: The Necessary and Proper Clause grants Congress authority sufficient to enact [civil-commitment statutes for sexually dangerous prisoners].

Sullivan v. Florida- Dismissed as Improvidently Granted
