    It looks like the Court will review the ability of the government to get two bites at the apple via federal and state jurisdiction.

    Dual Sovereign Doctrine Under Attack in the Supreme Court


    It seems that the expansion in the last few decades of Federal Law, and it's overlap with State laws has seen the court re-visit the concept for the first time since the 50's.

    Also interesting is the two justices who seem to have the biggest axes to grind with double dipping are Thomas and Ginsberg.
