Pearson v. Holder, 09-10808

In a challenge to the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act (SORNA) and state sex-offender laws as unconstitutional on the grounds that they impermissibly labeled those convicted of receipt of images of child pornography as "sex offenders," the dismissal of the action is reversed where, inasmuch as plaintiff's release date was only some two years hence, his case was sufficiently ripe for adjudication.
