CASE ENTRY

United States v. Hill

Without warning or provocation, worker at Amazon shipping facility punches coworker in the face repeatedly. He tells Chesterfield County, Va. police that he “does not like homosexuals, so he punched” the victim. Fourth Circuit (over a dissent): Interstate commerce is implicated, so the feds can prosecute him.
