Supreme Court decisions that changed the nation( Visual )

2 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The founding fathers created the Bill of Rights, but left succeeding generations of Americans the task of interpreting what these liberties meant. Our rights have most often been determined by court decisions; and the final word rests with the Supreme Court. Privacy, often defined as the right to be left alone, is an abstract concept until a live legal issue is presented. In Roe v. Wade the issue was this: should a woman have the right to terminate her pregnancy, or can the interests of the state government prevent such freedom of choice? The opinions of the justices can serve as the basis for student discussion views on the ethical and legal issues involved. A civics class may wish to use the roe case to discuss the far-reaching role of government. American history classes may find the Roe case useful in analyzing civil rights as they are interpreted now, and as they are interpreted now, and as they might be interpreted in the future

The requirement that judges restrain their personal feelings and prevent outside factors from influencing their judicial decisions can be traced back to English common law. This practice is known as judicial restraint, and the abandonment of this essential principle is at the heart of a controversial case known as The Dred Scott Decision. The Dred Scott Decision involved slavery and states' rights, two subjects that elicited strong opinions from almost all Americans -- subjects that even U.S. justices seemed unable to confront with professional open-mindedness and judicial restraint. Ultimately, the course of this case testified to the breakdown of compromise between North and South, a breakdown that led the country to civil war

One of the central concepts of the Constitution is the separation of powers among the legislative, executive and judicial branches of government. But two hundred years of American history have shown that the respective powers of the three branches sometimes overlap and conflict. U.S. v. Nixon is an example of just such a conflict. It provoked an assertion by the President that he must have strict confidentiality of his correspondence and other materials in order to operate the office of the Chief Executive effectively. When these materials were used as evidence necessary in a criminal trial, the question presented to the Supreme Court was: Which branch should prevail? U.S. v. Nixon can be used in an American history or government class to demonstrate that the separation of powers is not a static concept, but one that is continually evolving and developing

In all police arrests, the accused has the right to remain silent and to be provided with an attorney before and during questioning. He or she must also be informed of these rights, in order to exercise the 'privilege against self-incrimination.' The provision of these rights is a result of fairly recent Supreme Court decisions based on the Fifth and Sixth Amendments to the Constitution. Although the purpose of these rulings is to aid suspects who may be poor, inexperienced or ignorant of the law, some people argue that these rulings provide a kind of protection for the professional criminal as well. In examining these two key Supreme Court decisions, this program explores an issue that remains a subject of controversy today: balancing the fight of the accused with those of society

The powers of the federal government are defined according to our interpretation of the Constitution. The extent of these powers is now always spelled out and it is sometimes necessary to determine if certain powers may or may not be implied. In our history, the question of implied powers has long been the subject of dispute between those who support a strong federal government and those who believe in the sovereignty of the state. One groundbreaking dispute over this issue was the case known as McCulloch vs. Maryland -- a case that began after the War of 1812, when the founding of a National Bank caused this heated national controversy to come to a head

The concept of judicial review was established in a Supreme Court decision made early in our country's history -- a decision in the case known as Marbury vs. Madison. Judicial Review means that we intend to live by the principles of the Constitution, and that we believe that judges trained in the law are best qualified to uphold these principles; for judicial review gives the judicial branch of our government -- and the Supreme Court in particular -- the right to determine the constitutionality of all laws. In this landmark case, Chief Justice John Marshall found himself in a political dilemma involving the relationship of authority between the judicial and executive branches of government. The program explains how Marshall's historic decision managed to both satisfy President Jefferson and permanently strengthen the power of the Supreme Court

During the period following the Civil War, the United States gave legal justification to racial segregation -- revealing that although the country was ready to abolish slavery, it was not prepared to accept the concept of equal rights for blacks; the Supreme Court's decision in Plessy vs. Ferguson underscored this fact. After Lincoln's death, the Fourteenth and Fifteenth Amendments to the Constitution were passed in order to provide 'equal protection of the law' for all U.S. citizens. These amendments, however, were largely undermined by the passage of state laws discriminating against blacks and other minority groups. The principle of 'separate but equal' -- invoked in the case of Plessy vs. Ferguson -- set a precedent for the ruling of segregation cases over the next sixty years
