Recent Supreme Court Decisions

Recently, a couple of blog posts have dealt with the most outrageous, important, and/or course-changing decisions of the US Supreme Court in the last months, including topics such as botched executions and the right of women to remain in control of theirĀ  bodies. The following posts are worth reading:

1. Ilya Somin’s Religious Freedom in the Commercial Sphere (Burwell VS Hobby Lobby)

2. Austin Sarat’s Botching the 8th Amendment (Atkins VS Virginia)

3. Lyle Denniston’s Fifth Circuit Allows More Limits on Abortion in Texas

4. Amy Howe’s Court Strikes Down Abortion Clinic “Buffer Zone”( McCullen VS Coakley)

 

There is also a new monograph on the topic, published by University of Pennsylvania Press.
