    United States v. O’Brien (1968) — about burning draft cards and the First Amendment — I would say is significantly more famous than United States v. O’Brien (2010) — about the “machinegun” enhancement in 924(c).

    Rumsfield v. Padilla and Padilla v. Kentucky

    The extra nice thing about this one is that the Padilla in both cases is Jose Padilla, though a completely different Jose Padilla.
