As the Supreme Court term begins and the Court continues to add cases to its docket, Court watchers wonder what the term will hold. The Court has a new member, though not doctrinally distinct from Justice Souter. And the Court has added some interesting cases to its docket already. Whether the Second Amendment will be incorporated to the states is at issue in the Chicago gun case. The 8th Amendment’s “cruel and unusual punishment” clause is at issue again in two cases (here and here) with some interesting side issues included in them.
Here is one Supreme Court preview from a mentor of mine when it comes to constitutional issues who is also my former Dean.
