Overview

Privacy Rights: Cases Lost and Causes Won Before the Supreme Court is a unique and timely study of the judicial process as it confronts four privacy issues: birth control, gay rights, abortion, and the right to die. The moral questions surrounding these subjects create intense and enduring debates about the scope and limits of the right to privacy. In four historic cases the right to privacy was struck down by the Supreme Court; in four later cases these rulings were overturned. Why? This book explains the original failure by analyzing attorneys' mistakes, miscommunication in the judicial conference, attitudes and policy predilections of the justices, and the negative attitudes of state officials and interest groups. The ultimate win for privacy rights is an exciting story involving well-known cases like Lawrence v. Texas, Planned Parenthood v. Casey, Griswold v. Connecticut, and the case of Terri Schiavo. Through the personal and legal details of these dramatic stories, the debate on privacy rights comes alive.

Editorial Reviews

CHOICE
The book is an example of constitutional/legal research at its best...What makes the book especially interesting is the author's discussion of how Supreme Court justices arrive at a final decision. Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through practitioners. Essential. Law collections.

On every level, this is an excellent book. It is engaging, current, well written, and spins a series of interesting yarns. I can't wait to teach Judicial Process again. Thank you so much. My prayers have been answered.
Lee Epstein
Privacy Rights, the last installment of Alice Fleetwood Bartee's trilogy on the judicial process, may be the best yet. It certainly couldn't be more timely. The topics Bartee covers—birth control, gay rights, abortion, and the right to die—not only continue to get play in the courts; they also remain at the core of contemporary political discourse. I highly recommend Privacy Rights to all readers interested in the genesis, evolution, and modern-day incarnations of debates over the right to privacy.
