Chapman’s article cited in Supreme Court opinion
Assistant Professor Nathan S. Chapman’s article, “Due Process as Separation of Powers” (121 Yale Law Review 1672 (with M.

United States, 576 U.S. ___, slip op. at 18 (2015), in which the Court held that the provision that authorizes "enhanced sentencing" for conduct that "presents a serious potential risk of physical injury to another" is unconstitutionally vague, in violation of the Fifth Amendment Due Process Clause.
