More About This Textbook


This supplement covers the last four years of the Supreme Court, October Terms 2004, 2005, 2006, and 2007.

The three years also have seen many major developments, which are reflected in the cases included in this supplement. Some of the most important include the following:

  • Heller v. District of Columbia, concerning the meaning of the second Amendment
  • Hein v. Freedom from Religion, concerning taxpayer standing to challenge government expenditures
  • Gonzales v. Raich, on the scope of Congress's commerce power and whether Congress may prohibit the cultivation and possession of small amounts of marijuana for medicinal purposes
  • Hamdan v. Rumsfeld, on the legality of the military tribunals created to try those held as enemy combatants in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba
  • Boumediene v. Bush, on whether non-citizens detained as enemy combatants can be denied access to federal habeas corpus relief
  • Philip Morris USA v. Williams, on when punitive damage awards violate due process
  • Kelo v. City of New London, on what constitutes a taking for "public use" and whether a taking for economic development purposes is "public use"
  • Parents Involved in Community Schools v. Seattle School Dist. No. 1, on the ability of schools to use race as a factor in assigning students to achieve desegregation
  • Gonzales v. Carhart, on the constitutionality of the Federal Partial Birth Abortion Ban Act
  • Crawford v. Marion County Election Board, on whether a requirement for photo identification for voting is constitutional
  • Randall v. Sorrell, on the constitutionality of a state law restricting campaign contributions and expenditures, and Federal Election Commission v. Wisconsin Right to Life, Inc., on whether a key provision of the Bipartisan Campaign Finance Reform Act of 2002 is constitutional
  • Morse v. Frederick, concerning the constitutionality of punishing student speech
  • McCreary County v. ACLU of Kentucky and Van Orden v. Perry, on whether Ten Commandment displays violate the Establishment Clause
In addition to being important clarifications of the doctrines in these areas, these cases raise important underlying questions about how these constitutional provisions—and all of the Constitution—should be interpreted.
