    Professor says Supreme Court drew flawed conclusion from book
    It's not every day that a law professor has his book quoted by the Supreme Court, and so the University of Baltimore's Michael I. Meyerson was understandably intrigued when his 2012 work about the Framers' views on religion made it into Monday's...
  • Sotomayor Defends Limits On Discrimination

    Good for Sonia Sotomayor. She called out her U.S. Supreme Court peers for their dismissive attitudes toward our nation's troubling racial history and their wishful thinking on how far we have come in such matters. "The way to stop discrimination on...
  • Debunking Affirmative Action Euphemism

    Anodyne euphemisms often indicate an uneasy conscience or a political anxiety. Or both, as when the 1976 Democratic platform chose "compensatory opportunity" as a way of blurring the fact that the party favored racial discrimination in the form of...

    Food and beverage companies can be sued for false advertising if they put labels on products that would "mislead and trick consumers," the U.S. Supreme Court ruled Thursday. The unanimous decision could have broad impact on parts of the food industry....
  • High court limits death penalty in cases of intellectual disability

    High court limits death penalty in cases of intellectual disability
    The Supreme Court put a new and slightly expanded limit on the death penalty Tuesday, ruling that defendants whose IQ scores are near 70 should be spared because of their "intellectual disability." In a 5-4 decision, the court rejected the "rigid rule"...
  • The Supreme Court made the right call in Florida death penalty case

    The Supreme Court made the right call in Florida death penalty case
    A Supreme Court decision earlier Tuesday added some wiggle room to the definition of who is eligible for the death penalty, which is a good thing. As long as we’re stuck with this barbaric practice, we should at least make certain that we don’...
  • The Supreme Court rationalizes the death penalty

    The Supreme Court rationalizes the death penalty
    On the surface, the Supreme Court's death penalty holding Tuesday seems like a win for rationality and smart statistics. The 5-4 decision in Hall v. Florida said the state may not use an absolute cutoff of 70 on the IQ test as its measure of...
  • Supreme Court says IQ cannot determine mental fitness in capital cases

    The Supreme Court put new limits on the death penalty Tuesday, deciding that states may not use a "rigid rule" that denies leniency to defendants with severe mental disabilities simply because they score 70 or above on an IQ test. "Intellectual...
