SCOTUS limits the amount of money child porn victims can get from people who possess it

Death and Taxes

This Wednesday morning, SCOTUS voted to put a limit on the amount of restitution that people who consume child pornography pay the victims of child pornography. Surprisingly, the court was mostly not divided between “putting a limit on restitution” and “not putting a limit on restitution”–but between limits and no restitution at all. Voting in favor of no restitution at all, naturally, were Roberts, Scalia and Thomas. Once again, the only Justice with a brain in her head, Justice Sotomayor, wrote a dissent of her own saying that there should be no limit, period and that victims should be entitled to the full amount.
