We meant what we said in Ambert.
Not that there was any doubt, but the Eleventh Circuit this week upheld another Commerce Clause challenge to SORNA, relying on its prior decision in Ambert. For good measure, the Court cites its prior precedent rule, which reminds the reader that Ambert is good law unless and until reversed en banc or by the SCOTUS. For full details -- although there aren't many more -- check out the opinion in United States v. Myers, No. 09-10228 (Oct. 13, 2009).
