Flexible powers of the court 2. The steps, which the court will ordinarily take at the various stages of the proceedings provided for in the Public Law Outline, may be taken by the court at another stage in the proceedings if the circumstances of the case merit this approach. For example, if the issue on which the case turns can with reasonable practicability be crystallised and resolved by taking evidence at an IRH then such a flexible approach must be taken in accordance with the overriding objective and to secure compliance with section 1 2 of the Act and resolving the proceedings within 26 weeks or the period for the time being specified by the court. It is anticipated that an urgent preliminary case management hearing will only be necessary to consider issues such as jurisdiction, parentage, party status, capacity to litigate, disclosure and whether there is, or should be, a request to a Central Authority or other competent authority in a foreign state or consular authority in England and Wales in an international case.
A likely decision in favor of retroactivity? Posted Thu, March 31st, Welch is serving fifteen years in federal prison and it is not certain that he will benefit even if the Court decides this particular case in his favor. Of course it is silly to predict results based solely on oral argument.
United States will be declared to apply retroactively for all purposes, including on first and even successive assuming they are timely filed habeas corpus petitions. And as I explained in my previewthat result is likely, although not certain, to result in substantial sentencing reductions for a significant number of convicted federal defendants.
Some thirty years ago, Congress provided that while a felon convicted of possessing a firearm might be sent to prison for up to ten years, a subset of those felons — those with three prior convictions of a described type — should go to jail for a minimum of fifteen years.
Welch was convicted as a felon in possession of a firearm. So Welch may not get a sentencing reduction even if Johnson is fully retroactive. The Eleventh Circuit denied him relief, but the Court granted his pro se petition. The Court was looking for a fast vehicle to answer the retroactivity question before a year passed after Johnson, which was issued on June 26, But what about cases that are already final that is, the conviction and all challenges to it on direct appeal have been resolved before the new decision issues?
The question before the Court yesterday was, into which category should the void-for-vagueness ruling in Johnson fall?
Should the Court look at the effect, or the source, of the new rule? Justice Stephen Breyer reacted similarly. But most significantly because this eight-member Court still needs five votes for a merits rulingChief Justice John Roberts, who generally tries not to tip his hand too one-sidedly, seemed, in a relatively long and complex dialogue with Walker, to be focused on the effect of the new Johnson ruling, rather than its source in the Due Process Clause.
What about the Sentencing Guidelines? It should be noted that Dreeben ably attempted to engage the Court on the effect of Johnson on a similarly worded federal Sentencing Guidelines provision, and he argued that even if the Guidelines provision is now void, that ruling unlike the residual clause should not be applied retroactively to sentences that were final before Johnson.
Ali for petitioner Art Lien Conclusion The law of retroactivity presents intellectual conundra that may never be fully settled. The decision in this case is likely to be simply one more precedent in the wavering doctrinal line. We will never know what Justice Harlan, or Justice Scalia, thinks of it.
But convicted federal felons whose sentences are reduced by five or more years will not care about the intricacies, while young law professors aspiring to tenure will have new grist for their mills.

When is a Case Study Appropriate?
Case studies are appropriate when there is a unique or interesting story to be told. Before going into the Conference, the Justices frequently discuss the relevant cases with their law clerks, seeking to get different perspectives on the case.
