The Supreme Court And Double Jeopardy. The Supreme Court ruled today that it is not unconstitutional to try a person in both state and federal court for the same offense. The underlying case involved an Alabama man who pleaded guilty to a gun charge in the state courts and was then charged with the same offense by the federal authorities. He alleged this violated the double jeopardy clause, but today the Supreme Court disagreed. The vote was 7 to 2, with Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Neil M. Gorsuch each filing dissents. Do you agree with the decision?
