The Evolving Constitution by Lieberman

  • Dec 29, 2005
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.
