“Unquestionably, the definitive volume on the Supreme Court’s term.”

All previous editions are now just $5

Published every September, the Cato Supreme Court Review brings together leading legal scholars to analyze key cases from the Court’s most recent term, plus cases coming up. Now in its eighth edition, the Review is the first scholarly journal to appear after the term’s end and the only one to critique the Court from a Madisonian perspective, grounded in the nation’s first principles, liberty and limited government.

REVERSE RACIAL DISCRIMINATION – Ricci v. DeStefano – White and Hispanic firefighters’ challenge to New Haven’s decision not to certify the results of a race-neutral exam whose result was that no African-Americans qualified for promotion. By Kenneth Marcus

VOTING RIGHTS – NAMUDNO v. Holder and Bartlett v. Strickland – Considers the abyss between two sections of the Voting Rights Act and the important but precise constitutional guarantee of the Fifteenth Amendment. By Roger Clegg

GOVERNMENT SPEECH AND RELIGION – City of Pleasant Grove v. Summum – Quixotic case in which a small religious sect wanted to place its monument in a public park that already displayed the Ten Commandments. By Patrick Garry

REGULATION OF OBSCENTIY – FCC v. Fox – A split Court found that the FCC has the power to punish the broadcasting of “fleeting expletives” without getting into the First Amendment issues attending these actions. By Robert Corn-Revere

SEARCH AND SEIZURE – Herring v. United States; Arizona v. Gant; Pearson v. Callahan; Arizona v. Johnson; Safford USD No.1 v. Redding – Two looks at the Roberts Court’s jurisprudence in a variety of Fourth Amendment cases. By Erik Luna and Michael O’Neill

SPECIAL FEATURES INCLUDE:

IS THE CONSTITUTION LIBERTARIAN? – In the annual B. Kenneth Simon Lecture, Randy Barnett of the Georgetown University Law Center explains that the Constitution is libertarian to the extent that its original meaning respects and protects the five fundamental rights that are at the core of both classical liberalism and modern libertarianism.

LOOKING AHEAD – Jan Crawford Greenburg, ABC News legal correspondent and author of the critically acclaimed Supreme Conflict, offers analysis and predictions for the 2009-10 term.
