Supreme Court Review
Hawke, Catherine
Social Education, v75 n5 p236-240 Oct 2011
Many commentators have noted that the 2010 Supreme Court term was without the "fireworks" of recent years and, therefore, this year the Court garnered limited media attention and national interest. Contributing to this limited attention was the fact that the term ended with no retirements or looming confirmation battles. In addition, the term's highest profile cases ended up being somewhat predictable. Nevertheless, this was still an important term as it provided some insight into how the Court may continue to define its First Amendment jurisprudence and how it may rule in important cases working their way through the appellate process. The new Supreme Court case line up promises constitutional "fireworks" with lawsuits dealing with Medicaid, tracking suspects with a GPS, as well as expletives and nudity on TV. (Contains 15 notes.)
