The United States Supreme Court has issued five new opinions.
In ZF Automotive U. S., Inc. v. Luxshare, Ltd., the court held that although 28 U. S. C. §1782(a) permits a district court to order discovery “for use in a proceeding in a foreign or international tribunal,” only a governmental or intergovernmental adjudicative body may qualify as such a tribunal, and the arbitration panels in these cases are not such adjudicative bodies.

In Johnson v. Arteaga-Martinez, the court held that Title 8 U. S.

In Garland v. Gonzalez, the court held that Title 8 U. S. C. §1252(f)(1)—which generally strips lower courts of “jurisdiction or authority” to “enjoin or restrain the operation of ” certain provisions of the Immigration and Nationality Act—deprived the District Courts of jurisdiction in these cases to entertain respondents’ requests for class-wide injunctive relief.

In Kemp v. United States, the court held that the term “mistake” in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 60(b)(1) includes a judge’s errors of law; because Kemp’s motion alleged such an error, it was cognizable under Rule 60(b)(1) and untimely under Rule 60(c)’s 1-year limitations period.
