Cato Supreme Court Review: 2007–2008
About the Book
Now in its seventh year, this acclaimed annual publication, which comes out every September, brings together leading national scholars to analyze the Supreme Court’s most important decisions from the term just ended and preview the year ahead. The Cato Supreme Court Review is unlike any other publication that follows the work of the Court. It is timely. An in‐depth review, it appears less than three months after the Court’s term ends and before the new term begins. Although directed to legal experts, its articles are fully accessible to non‐attorneys interested in the work of the Court. Crucial to its exceptional coverage, the Review takes a Madisonian perspective, grounded in the nation’s first principles, liberty and limited government.
Cases critiqued in the 2007–2008 edition include major Court decisions on the Second Amendment, the rights of enemy combatant detainees in Guantánamo and elsewhere, the applicability of international law in state criminal proceedings, the regulation of political parties, and the biggest cases in decades in the areas of securities, patent, and energy law.
