Conservapedia:Supreme Court Project
Welcome to the Supreme Court Project, which will harness the power of this collaborative site to analyze and explain the U.S. Supreme Court, its significance, its direction, and suggest legal approaches for change.
- Chief Justice John Roberts (since October 2005)
- Justice John Paul Stevens
- Justice Antonin Scalia
- Justice Anthony Kennedy
- Justice David Souter
- Justice Clarence Thomas
- Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg
- Justice Stephen Breyer
- Justice Samuel Alito (since January 2006)
Issues where the Court now has 5 votes, with the replacement by Justice Alito of Justice O'Connor's seat, to overturn liberal precedents:
- abortion (but probably not yet 5 votes to overturn Roe v. Wade)
- affirmative action
- campaign finance
- Establishment Clause
- Title IX, especially against retaliation claim established in Jackson v. Birmingham Bd. of Ed.
Generally, all grants of certiorari by the end of January can be heard in the same term of the U.S. Supreme Court. Grants of certiorari that occur after February 1st are likely to heard in the following term beginning in October.
