Rulings on contraception and recess appointments may have grabbed bigger headlines, but the Supreme Court's decision last month requiring police to get a warrant before snooping through someone's cellphone is likely to have a bigger lasting impact.
The Supreme Court ruled Wednesday that police cannot go snooping through people's cell phones without a warrant, in a unanimous decision that amounts to a major statement in favor of privacy rights.
The Supreme Court on Monday unanimously rejected the federal government's effort to stretch a major international treaty to cover a domestic dispute, ruling that a law meant to implement a chemical-weapons treaty doesn't apply to a woman who tried to poison her husband's lover.
The Supreme Court overturned aggregate campaign finance limits Wednesday, freeing wealthy Americans to give to as many federal candidates as they want — though the justices left in place the cap on how much can be given to any one person.
The U.S. Supreme Court is beginning a new term with controversial topics that offer the court's conservative majority the chance to move aggressively to undo limits on campaign contributions, undermine claims of discrimination in housing and mortgage lending, and allow for more government-sanctioned prayer.
The American people have made it abundantly clear that they do not want Obamacare. In fact, a majority of elected officials, the same officials that voted to implement this health care mandate, do not want it, either.
Sen. Rand Paul said federal workers shouldn't get a pass from joining Obamacare — and that means Justice John G. Roberts Jr., too.
The Supreme Court's decision Wednesday on Proposition 8 unlocked the door for same-sex marriage in California but also may have stifled the voices of the state's voters.
In a banner day for supporters of gay marriage, a closely divided U.S. Supreme Court struck down a federal provision that denied benefits to legally married same-sex couples and, in a separate case, cleared the way for California to resume offering marriage licenses to gay couples.
The Supreme Court ruled Tuesday that states no longer can be judged by voting discrimination that went on decades ago, a decision that argues the country has fundamentally changed since the racially motivated laws of the civil rights era.
"It is wholly foreseeable that the PKK could use the 'specific skill[s]' that plaintiffs propose to impart, as part of a broader strategy to promote terrorism," Chief Justice Roberts wrote. "The PKK could, for example, pursue peaceful negotiation as a means of buying time to recover from short-term setbacks, lulling opponents into complacency, and ultimately preparing for renewed attacks."
"Such support frees up other resources within the organization that may be put to violent ends," Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. wrote for the majority. "It also importantly helps lend legitimacy to foreign terrorist groups -- legitimacy that makes it easier for those groups to persist, to recruit members and to raise funds -- all of which facilitate more terrorist attacks."
