Logan v. United States presents a question to the U.S. Supreme Court concerning preemption and the FDA:
- A prior conviction does not count as a sentencing predicate under the Armed Career Criminal Act of 1986, 18 U.S.C. 924(e)(1), if the defendant's civil rights were "restored." 18 U.S.C. 921(a)(20). The question is whether a State restores civil rights for purposes of that provision when it never deprives a defendant of those rights, and instead leaves the rights intact at all times.
