Q: 

supreme court to hear School Strip Search Case Today?

A:  understand this theres more to this story that anyone is being told the media is crooked and only reports half truths http://www.cnn.com/2009/US/04/19/scotus.strip.search/ This is one of those ridiculous cases where a school district went overboard. Most school districts have rules about prescription medications, even non-prescription drugs like Tylenol. AT the time of the search, there was a prescription strength form of Ibuprofen. This is what she was accused of having. But I believe they totally violated her rights. In the first place, she is a minor, and something like that should have been discussed with her parents before even thinking about a strip search. The reason it made it to the supreme court is that...

Q: 

Help on supreme court case?

A:  The supreme court and Appellate court opinions will describe the arguments made on behalf of each of the parties. You can also find supreme court briefs on line, which will also set out the parties'' arguments. It''s always good to be able to state the arguments for the side you don''t believe in, since that''s a good way to prepare to respond to them. So, this is a good exercise. Read the opinion of the court. It will spell out the arguments presented. You understand Bakke, but do you understand the cases since Bakke? I will just make a few points. First; this was a divided court ruling so...

Q: 

Allowing for many years of hindsight-do you feel Clarence Thomas should be a supreme court Justice?

A:  My judgment of Thomas is based on his actual performance on the bench. I think he''s shown he''s not really supreme court material. He votes with Scalia about 95% of the time, and I don''t believe he has ever written an opinion of his own. (If so, it''s been rare.) The two biggest lies GHW Bush ever told in his entire term were about Clarence Thomas. (1) That he was just the very best man he could find for the job and (2) that his race didn''t matter. Yes. Why do you ask? Let me point out two things here: It was proven many, many, many years ago that Thomas did not perjure himself during the hearings and Anita Hill was an opportunist. He is indeed quite qualified to sit on the

Q: 

Information about the cases granted certiorari for the upcoming term of the US supreme court?

A:  What exactly are your goals here? I could be more helpful if I knew what kind of school project you had in mind. The issues presented in the bulk of supreme court cases just aren''t going to be accesible to the public, even bright undergrads, no matter what. Many of the granted cases revolve around what lay people quaintly call "technicalities," such as "the distinction between law and equity in ERISA jurisdiction." Hell, even lawyers don''t get those technicalities sometimes....

Q: 

How do I remove a case in Federal court to the U.S. supreme court? It involves an incarcerated consul general

A:  There are very few cases where the supreme court has original jurisdiction and in some of those, jurisdiction is now concurrent with district courts by statute. In other words, you can file a motion in district court to suggest that original jurisdiction is in the supreme court and ONLY in the supreme court, but I''m betting you will not be successfull. The supreme court is only likely to hear this case on a petition for writ of certiorari after an Appeals court...

Why was the supreme court Case ''U.S. vs. Nixon'' important in defining the powers of the branches of government?

A:  the supreme court case ''U.S. vs. Nixon'' limited the power of the president after the watergate scandal happened. the president cannot use executive privilege as an excuse to withhold evidence that is ''demonstrably relevant in a criminal trial.'' This case was important because it did much to define the power of the president to claim executive privilege.  The court rejected Nixon''s expansive claim of executive privilege in this case.  It ruled that the president is not immune from having to comply with orders from courts. In this case, Nixon had been ordered to turn over tapes that he had made of conversations regarding the Watergate investigation.  He refused, saying the president was...

Q: 

Briefly identify the U.S. supreme court findings in the case of Kent v United States (1966)

A:  Put briefly, the importance of this case is that supreme court gave more rights to juvenile defendants.  In this case, the court said that juvenile courts had to give defendants more due process rights than they had been even though cases in these juvenile courts are not technically criminal cases (they are technically civil cases). In the actual case, the court''s ruling was that the juvenile court acted illegally when it sent the case of Morris Kent to a a regular (adult) criminal court.  This was illegal because Kent...
