Holding : The dual sovereignty doctrine—under which two offenses are not the “same offence” for double jeopardy purposes if prosecuted by separate sovereigns—is upheld.
Judgment : Affirmed, 7-2, in an opinion by Justice Alito on June 17, 2019. Justice Thomas filed a concurring opinion. Justice Ginsburg and Justice Gorsuch filed dissenting opinions.
I am highly disappointed, but not the least bit surprised by the outcome. Unfortunately, expediency has triumped over principle and both the liberal and conservative justices, other than Ginsburg and Gorsuch, were complicit.
