Out of order : stories from the history of the Supreme Court by Sandra Day O'Connor ( Book )
7 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 1,632 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
From the first woman to sit on the United States Supreme Court comes this book about the history and evolution of the highest court in the land. This book sheds light on the centuries of change and upheaval that transformed the Supreme Court from its uncertain beginnings into the remarkable institution that thrives and endures today. From the early days of circuit-riding, to the changes in civil rights ushered in by Earl Warren and Thurgood Marshall, from foundational decisions such as Marbury v. Madison to modern-day cases such as Hamdi v. Rumsfeld, she weaves together stories and lessons from the history of the Court, charting turning points and pivotal moments that have helped define our nation's progress. She paints vivid pictures of Justices in history, including Oliver Wendell Holmes, Thurgood Marshall, William O. Douglas, and John Roberts. She provides a rare glimpse into the Supreme Court's inner workings: how cases are chosen for hearing; the personal relationships that exist among the Justices; and the customs and traditions, both public and private, that bind one generation of jurists to the next, from the seating arrangements at Court lunches to the fiercely competitive basketball games played in the Court building's top-floor gymnasium, the so-called "highest court in the land."

"Disc 1. Freedom of speech: Amid the turmoil of the 1960s, students decided to wear black armbands to protest the Vietnam War, igniting a legal battle that led to a landmark U.S. Supreme Court decision, Tinker v. Des Moines Independent Community School District (1969), which defined students' right to free speech in school. This conversation focuses on free speech in light of Tinker and the Morse v. Frederick (2007) case. Jury Service: This conversation explores the history and responsibilities of juries and the role they play in the United States judicial system. Juries: In 11 short video segments, constitutional experts, lawyers and judges discuss the importance of jury service, including the history of English and American juries, types of juries, qualifications for jury service and what to expect as a juror. Disc 2. Yick Wo and the Equal Protection clause: In Yick Wo v. Hopkins (1886), the U.S. Supreme Court held that non-citizens had due process rights under the 14th Amendment. the plaintiff, an immigrant from China who had run a laundry service for 22 years, filed suit after he was denied a permit to operate his business. The Supreme Court unanimously ruled that although the laundry permit law was race-neutral, it was applied in a discriminatory fashion. Korematsu and civil liberties: After America was attacked by Japan at Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt issued Executive Order 9066 consigning 120,000 people of Japanese ancestry (two-thirds of them American citizens) to internment camps. Fred Korematsu challenged the internment all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court. In Korematsu v. United States (1944), the court sided with the government. Decades later, Congress and the U.S. president formally apologized for the internment" -- Container
