The Evolving Constitution by Lieberman

  • Dec 29, 2005
Rating:
+5
The work describes constitutional issues considered by the
United States Supreme Court over the past 200 years. Judicial
power has been exercised in the following types of situations:

- disputes between citizens of different states

- appellate jurisdiction of law and fact

- the 14th amendment requiring that no state should enforce
laws abridging the rights of citizens nor deny equal
protection under the laws

- the Supreme Court may balance or weigh state powers as against
individual rights

- strict scrutiny utilizes a rational basis or relationship test

- important criteria include whether or not an important
government objective is served or the issue at bar is
substantially encompassed by the governmental objective

- there is a right to sue when injured by a private person
in the common law

- there is an implied constitutional right of action

- federal law prohibits discrimination on the basis of age,
medical condition and physical handicap according to the
American Disabilities Act of 1990.

This work will appeal to a very wide constituency of legal
scholars, American History enthusiasts and others in academia.
