US v. Myers, No. 09-10228
In the government's appeal from a district court's order dismissing an indictment that charged defendant with traveling in interstate commerce and failing to register as a sex offender as required by the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act (SORNA), the order is reversed where the court of appeals recently upheld against a Commerce Clause challenge both the failure-to-register offense in 18 U.S.C. section 2250(a) and the registration requirements in 42 U.S.C. section 16913.
