Violent sex offenders; due process

United States v. Maclaren, 866 F.3d 212 (4th Cir. 2017)

Fourth Circuit rules that a motion for discharge by a civilly committed sex offender under the Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act must be heard by the district court if, after meeting prescribed time requirements, the motion contains “sufficient factual matter, accepted as true, to state a claim for discharge” that is “plausible on its face.”
