A look back at the Supreme Court’s October 2018 term

The text, after a general overview of the current composition of the U.S. Supreme Court, with reference to its ideological balance, proceeds to the review of the main decisions issued during the 2018/2019 Term, with particular attention to the constitutional-criminal jurisprudence. Two judgments on the principle of legality, drafted by the originalist/textualist Justice Neil Gorsuch are examined, highlighting his contribution to strengthening that constitutional safeguard. We then proceed to the examination of the recent death penalty jurisprudence, a context in which the strengthened conservative majority, in order to guarantee at all costs the effectiveness of the extreme sanction and the protection of the victim rights, seems to give a new "restrictive" turn to the interpretation of the prohibition of cruel and unusual punishment and to the criteria for assessing last-minute petitions by capital convicts. This trend could call into question several settled precedents. Taking into account other criminal law decisions issued in the Term just ended, we focus conclusively on the cases that will be decided in the upcoming 2019/2020 Term, positing what could be some of the future developments in the criminal law area

Protección penal de la vida y autodeterminación terapéutica: cuatro cuestiones a propósito de la Ordinanza 207/2018 de la Corte Costituzionale italiana

Text of the commentary exposed at the conference of professor Francesco Viganò, judge at the Constitutional Court, on “The Italian Criminal Law in the light of the Constitution and the Human Rights in the 21st century: five relevant judgments of the Italian Constitutional Court in the biennium 2018-2019”, given on 5 July 2019, in Santiago de Chile (Universidad Diego Portales), within the framework of the II Italo-Chilean Seminar on Criminal Justice. The discussant raises four main issues about the Order n. 207/2018 of the Italian Constitutional Court concerning the crime of assisted suicide: (1) Does the Court argue the unconstitutionality of the 219/2017 Act? (2) Does the Court overcome, although under certain conditions, the distinction between the withdrawal of consent to medical treatment and assisted suicide or euthanasia? (3) Would the regulation of assisted suicide admit a right to conscientious objection? (4) Which is the functional limit, in this context, of the principle of equality and reasonableness?
