Today's criminal law/procedure cert grant

Questions presented from ScotusBlog:

  • Burrags v. United States: Whether the crime of distributing drugs causing death is a strict liability crime without a cause requirement. Whether a person can be convicted of that crime under jury instructions which allow a conviction when the heroin contributed to death but was not the sole cause of the death.
