The US Supreme Court issued orders Monday adding three new cases to the docket for next term on subjects including copyright, fraud and post-sentence objections.
The Supreme Court granted certiorari in Allen v. Looper, which asks whether Congress can remove a state's Eleventh Amendment sovereign immunity from cases involving federal copyright infringement. The case, rather ironically, comes from the State of North Carolina infringing the copyright of a production company that was filming the salvage of famed pirate Blackbeard's flagship, Queen Anne's Revenge.
