Abstract

At the core of American values, is the separation of powers. To maintain this value the nondelegation doctrine was created, assuring the powers of our nation did not delegate authority to other powers. America has always held closely the idea that no one power should carry too much authority but rather authority should be shared amongst the different branches of government. Have we broken this core value? Gundy v. US discusses the Sex Offender Registration Notification Act, also known as SORNA, and its context of giving the Attorney General authority. SORNA gives the Attorney General discretion in the application of SORNA to offenders convicted before its enactment, as well as to rules of registration and categoric levels of sex offenders. This case asks if SORNA’s delegation of authority to the Attorney General violates the nondelegation doctrine. I will be discussing possible outcomes of Gundy v. US and how such outcomes can affect our nation.
