Sex Offender Precedent

WASHINGTON - The Supreme Court on Tuesday vacated six different circuit decisions involving the registration concerns for sex offenders convicted before enactment of a 2006 federal law.

Last month, in Reynolds v. United States, the high court said the attorney general must make a specific finding in these cases.

Six cases were vacated in this vein on Tuesday. They are: Bruce Gagnon v. United States, Michael DiTomasso v. United States, Jonathon P. Curry v. United States, Ross A. Fuller v. United States, William E. Mefford v. United States, Carl E. Lucas v. United States.
