Name Instructor’s Name Course Date The Supreme Court as a National Policy-Maker The polarized politics of the Roberts Court article examines the Roberts Court and its relationship to the Obama’s government after the results of midterm elections in 2014. It starts by analyzing the structure of the Court during the past 40 years. The court has been structured by electoral politics and it has been seen to be more conservative, divided and polarized in its decision-making and this reflects the politics of the post-1968 electoral regime.

If there was no sense of privacy, then we would live in a country where the government would hold all the power and eventually control our lives. This is most definitely not what the Founding Fathers had in mind when they wrote both the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence. The purpose of those documents was to limit the government from having all the power over its citizens which is why the colonies decided to break from the tyranny of the British. Had the Supreme Court ruled in favor of the Connecticut law, the government would have had the power to now

Caldwell contends that the circuit court erred by denying Caldwell’s motion for a mistrial when State’s witnesses discussed evidence that had been suppressed.

The trial court erred and abused its discretion in granting the State’s motion to admit evidence of prior uncharged incidents of domestic violence, because the evidence denied Mr. Davis of his rights to due process of law as guaranteed by the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments of the United States Constitution, and Article I, Section 10 of the Missouri Constitution, in that the evidence was more prejudicial than probative because it was too remote in time to be relevant to the charged crimes and had a prejudicial effect.
