OU Law Professor Stephen Henderson and other scholars filed a Brief of Amici Curiae in support of the petitioner in Gamble v. United States, a case now pending before the U.S. Supreme Court.
The Supreme Court heard oral arguments in the case on Dec. 6, 2018 (listen here).
Gamble v. United States concerns an Alabama man, Terance Gamble, who was convicted of both federal and state gun charges arising from the same traffic stop. Gamble is challenging the Constitution’s double jeopardy exception, also known as the Separate Sovereigns Doctrine. This doctrine is based on long-standing Supreme Court rulings that the federal government and Alabama are separate sovereigns, and both can prosecute him for the same crime without running afoul of the Fifth Amendment’s ban on double jeopardy.
Professor Henderson is the Judge Haskell A. Holloman Professor of Law at OU Law. He teaches, writes, and speaks about criminal law, criminal procedure, and privacy. A prolific scholar, one of his most recent works is his book, Our Constitutional Constraints: Policing.
