Chief Justice Roberts delivered the opinion of the Court.

There is an exponential relationship between radius length and surface area (Area = π r²). Increasing the radius of the shutdown zone from 200 to 2,200 yards would accordingly expand the surface area of the shutdown zone by a factor of over 100 (from 125,664 square yards to 15,205,308 square yards).

Well, it’s all O(1) anyway when it comes to the Supreme Court. James Grimmelmann, please call your office.
