Gundy v. US, 17–6086

Held that Congress may lawfully delegate to the Attorney General the authority to prescribe certain sex-offender registration rules. The dispute here involved the nondelegation doctrine, which bars Congress from transferring its legislative power to another branch of government. Justice Kagan announced the Court's judgment and delivered a plurality opinion.
