Another cert grant with Third Circuit implications

The Supreme Court today granted certiorari to hear an Eleventh Circuit case to decide whether to overrule the “separate sovereigns” exception to the double jeopardy clause. The case is Gamble v. United States, 17-646. The Court did not act on a cert petition from a Third Circuit case raising the same issue that it had re-listed 10 times (Scotus docket here), but it seems clear that any eventual ruling in Gamble will have an impact here, too.

Thanks to MDPA assistant federal defender Fritz Ulrich for pointing out the Third Circuit dimension to me.
