Supreme Court Term in Review
Hawke, Catherine
Social Education, v76 n5 p229-232 Oct 2012
One can't have a meaningful discussion about the 2011-2012 U.S. Supreme Court term without mentioning the historic health care challenge. However, even without that headliner, the term was jam-packed with interesting twists and turns. In addition to health care, the Court confronted a number of hot-button issues, including: immigration, the rights of criminal suspects and defendants, and First Amendment rights for liars, broadcasters, and unions. Looking ahead, as the Court begins its 2012 term, the role of the federal and state governments with regards to enforcing, or defining, important civil rights will likely take center stage. Two cases of interest in the criminal law arena will also be heard during the early portion of this term: "Bailey v. U.S." and "Florida v. Jardines." (Contains 16 notes.)
