two quick hits

"Government officials can detain 'sexually dangerous' offenders even after their federal prison terms have been completed, the Supreme Court ruled Monday."

and

"Juveniles may not be sentenced to life in prison without parole for any crime short of homicide, the Supreme Court ruled yesterday, expanding its command that young offenders must be treated differently from adults even for heinous crimes."

Looking for good analysis of both. My first questions for the top one, since I'm anti-indefinite-detention: who makes that decision, and how is it appealed?
