Is SORNA Going to the U.S. Supreme Court?

sexcrimes.typepad.com : Is SORNA Going to the U.S. Supreme Court?

SCOTUSblog’s recent Petitions to Watch post, which lists cases that might be heard by the U.S. Supreme Court, includes a case raising constitutional issues with SORNA. The case, which we previously blogged about, is from the Seventh Circuit with an opinion by Judge Posner. You may view the opinion here and the petition for writ of certiorari here.

This case involves the Ex Post Facto retroactive application of SORNA as it relates to inter-state travel and failure to register of persons whose underlying offense and interstate travel both predated enactment of the statute.
