This second volume in Palgrave’s SCOTUS series describes, explains, and contextualizes the major cases of the US Supreme Court for the term ending in 2019. This chapter summarizes the major decisions of the 11 core cases covered in this book, which focused on four constitutional questions: defendants’ rights, fair elections, separation of powers, and the establishment of religion.

Bucklew decision, page 12. A brief note on citations in the volume: Recent decisions have not yet been printed in the U.S. Reports that collect all Supreme Court decisions at the Library of Congress (so the page number in the volume is still blank, as in 573 U.S. ___). To identify quotes from the recent decisions, we will use page numbers from the slip opinions issued immediately by the Court, which are readily available online at the U.S. Supreme Court Web site ( www.supremecourt.gov/opinions). Links to opinions, oral arguments, briefs by each party, and many other details are also available at SCOTUSblog.com.
