(Help with Judicial Politics class) Survey question

Postby WaukeeBlues » Wed Dec 05, 2007 8:50 pm

please!? :D thank you.

To clarify somewhat: by important, I mean to say how important did the courts DECISION end up being- not necessarily the case itself.

I'm sorry if this is a sh*tty question

(google them if you don't remember what exactly the cases entailed)

as per request...
Roe V. Wade was woman's right to choice in an abortion. Later amended by rulings in other cases to be limited to 18+ without parental consent and not needing spousal approval but still upheld.

Brown vs. Board was desegregation of public schools, setting the stage for the Civil Rights act almost a decade later.

Heart of Atlanta motel vs. U.S. was the immediate challenge to the Civil Rights Act (specifically the portion stating that public places/businesses were to be desegregated as well). The Heart of Atlanta Motel owner stated he could basically do what he wanted with his own business and the Supreme Court ruled that Congress had the power to desegregate public businesses due to its interstate commerce powers. Court therefore upheld the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

NLRB was the case that marked the first pro-worker legislation. It essentially allowed for things such as child labor laws and maximum hour work weeks that the Supreme Court had earlier ruled against. This one case established the prototype for the standards of jobs and work as we know it today.

Marbury v. Madison was the case in which the Supreme Court decided for the right for itself to declare laws unconstitutional.

ohio Blues- I'm doing this survey to get a couple hundred answers. I am not basing my survey on this website- only adding about 30 or so or whatever I get here to my other, larger, numbers. Plus it allows me to get responses from different geographic areas, making my validity stronger.

Why don't you give us paragraph summaries of the individual cases?

Normally I would go with Allblues555 vs. the city of Ellisville, but those bastards don't deserve my recognition.

this poll is automatically invalidated as there is no "Aode is a tool" option.

btw - you are a tool.

I'm not that stupid to have the basis of the whole survey on a single forum in a website...

M vs. M PERIOD!

This case totally invalidated checks and balances. Who do these 9 f*cks think they are deciding for everyone else what should and shouldn't be legal?


I am the ONLY one who should decide what is allowed!!!!

Just kidding.

Maybe.

No, not really.

:lol: :lol: :lol:

:wink:

i know that's the first thing you look for in a website - a good man:man ratio. makes it easier for you to find the cornhole.

what about the decision for Aode in the case of Aode vs. LGB? the most lopsided trade in Blues history.

Just because I'm a lady doesn't mean I'll vote rode v wade. I don't care what the supreme court say, I'll do what I want anyway. Therefore, it isn't important to me. :)
