This chapter discusses seven additional cases that may well have earned individual chapters of their own if space in this brief volume had allowed it. Several cases are about who can and cannot be sued under various conditions (states, local governments, police, companies in class actions, and even Apple in the ongoing dispute about pricing in the App Store). Two other cases address questions about “immoral” or “scandalous” trademarks and the interpretation of “crimes of violence” under federal law. Three of these cases divide 5-4 along ideological lines, while four others depend on much more interesting divisions among the Justices.
