In Apprendi v. New Jersey, 530 U.S. 466 (2000), the Supreme Court held that under the Sixth Amendment “any fact,” other than the fact of a prior conviction, that increases the penalty for a crime beyond the prescribed statutory maximum “must be submitted to a jury, and proved beyond a reasonable doubt.” Id. at 490. On June 21, 2012, in Southern Union Co. v. United States, No. 11-94, the Supreme Court ruled that this constitutional right extends to criminal fines.

Under the Copyright Act’s first sale doctrine, codified at 17 U.S.C. § 109(a), “the owner of a particular copy . . . lawfully made under this title” may sell or otherwise transfer ownership of that copy without the authorization of the copyright owner. In Quality King Distributors, Inc. v. L’anza Research International, Inc., 523 U.S. 135 (1998), the Supreme Court held that the first sale doctrine is applicable to imported copies. In Costco Wholesale Corp. v. Omega, S.A., 131 S. Ct. 565 (2010), the Court granted certiorari to decide whether the first sale doctrine applies to imported goods that are manufactured abroad, but the lower court’s decision in that case was affirmed in a one-line order by an equally divided Court (with Justice Kagan recused). On April 16, 2012, the Supreme Court granted certiorari in Kirtsaeng v. Wiley & Sons, Inc., No. 11-697, to decide the same question on which it was equally divided in Costco: whether the first sale doctrine applies to goods produced abroad and then imported into the United States.

Section 1129(b)(2)(A)(iii) of the Bankruptcy Code allows a court to find that a chapter 11 “cramdown” plan is “fair and equitable” to an objecting class of secured creditors if the plan provides for the realization by such holders of the “indubitable equivalent” of their claims. Section 1129(b)(2)(A)(ii), through reference to Section 363(k), permits the sale of collateral free and clear of liens if secured creditors are allowed to “credit bid”—that is, to bid the value of their claim in an auction of the collateral. On December 12, 2011, the Supreme Court granted certiorari in RadLAX Gateway Hotel, LLC v. Amalgamated Bank, No. 11-166, to decide whether secured creditors are guaranteed the right to credit bid in Chapter 11 auction sales.
