Transcript: Origins The Supreme Court started with the Judiciary Act of 1789. It was created to interpret laws and make sure no one broke them and got away with it. The act said that there would be a Supreme Court made up of one Chief Justice and some Associate Justices. The number of Associate Justices changed from time to time until it was finally decided in 1869 that there would be nine. The first Chief Justice was John Jay from New York. The first Associate Justices were: John Rutledge, William Cushing, James Wilson, John Blair, and James Iredell. The first case the Supreme Court had wasn't until 1792 because until then the specifics on powers were still being decided. 1930 In 1930, the Supreme Court said that U.S. Steel, a really big company, big enough to be a monopoly, didn't break the anti-trust laws since it did have competition, though only a little. 1935 In 1935, the Supreme Court shut down the National Recovery Administration, saying that it was unconstitutional. 1937 Then, in 1937, the Supreme Court called the National Labor Relations Board unconstitutional and shut it down. Also in 1937, Roosevelt tried to make the Supreme Court bigger and fill it with liberals so he could progress the New Deal faster. Impact on Citizens The Supreme Court didn't really have much of an impact on the people. It did stop some of the programs of the New Deal, but not a lot. It shut down the NRA and the NLRB, which slowed the progression of fair business practices, but that didn't stop the New Deal nor did it make the depression much worse or better. All it did was slow down the New Deal, but it didn't stop it. Present-Day Impact The Supreme Court is still the most powerful court in the U.S. Anything that it says goes, and its judgment is final and not to be questioned once it is made. Whenever there is a highly disputed topic, the Supreme Court always makes the final decision. If there is a case to close for other all other courts to call, it goes to the Supreme Court. That is the Supreme Court's role in our lives today.

Transcript: The cases were combined because they all sought desegregation of schools as the remedy of grossly inadequate conditions in segregated black schools Amber Fiedler Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka, 347 U.S. 483 (1954), was a landmark United States Supreme Court case in which the Court declared state laws establishing separate public schools for black and white students to be unconstitutional. impact the U.S The vote on Brown v. Board of Education was unanimous, meaning that all nine justices voted the same way. The ruling in the case was written by Earl Warren, who was Chief Justice. The Court bears much of the blame for this. The justices of the mid-1950s came of age at a time when judges routinely struck down federal child labor laws and other progressive legislation, citing dubious theories of the Constitution. Judges Brown v. board of education 1954 Holding major argument Background on brown v board of education Chief Justice Warren delivered the court's opinion, stating that "segregated schools are not equal and cannot be made equal, and hence they are deprived of the equal protection of the laws." This ruling in favor of integration was one of the most significant strides America has taken in favor of civil liberties. Dissenting Harry Briggs was one of twenty plaintiffs who were charging that R.W. Elliott, as president of the Clarendon County School Board, violated their right to equal protection under the fourteenth amendment by upholding the county's segregated education law argument Supreme court powerpoint I think the brown v board of education is the most important case in the u.s because it helped people realize that even if the kids are not white or not black they can still go to school together.

Transcript: The Supreme Court: United States v. Jones Held that the Fourth Amendment protects a person’s “reasonable expectation of privacy,” A petitioner would be entitled to the suppression of evidence violate of the Fourth Amendment where the Government unlawfully overheard conversations of the petitioner himself, or where the conversations occurred on his premises, whether or not he was present or participated therein. The court ruled that Armstrong had no expectation of privacy in his movements when traveling on public streets and that, because tracking Armstrong consisted primarily of visual surveillance upon such routes, this surveillance did not violate his Fourth Amendment rights. Supreme Court held that the use of the beeper to conduct surveillance on Karo and his accomplices constituted an unlawful search and seizure in violation of the Fourth Amendment The court announces its final decision in "opinions of the Court" which states their reasoning. "The Court’s reasoning in this case is very similar to that in the Court’s early decisions involving wiretapping and electronic eavesdropping" Jones has been accused of drug trafficking. States that the officers did not have the right to put a GPS on his car for 28 days, it goes against the Fourth Amendment. The arguments are then presented by each side Nowadays, Judges give only brief summaries of the decision and their opinions. Sometimes, when judges are unusually unhappy with an opinion, judges read portions of their dissenting opinions from the bench. Copies of the Court's opinions are immediately made available to reporters and the public and published in the official United States Supreme Court Reports There has been controversy over what judges consider to be impeding on our fourth amendment right. Chief Judge Alex Kozinski of the federal appeals court in San Francisco wrote that “1984 may have come a bit later than predicted, but it’s here at last". Judge Nicholas G. Garaufis of the Federal District Court in Brooklyn turned down a government request for 113 days of location data from cellphone towers, citing “Orwellian intrusion” So the case was sent to Supreme Court. US v. Jones Majority voted to hear the case. Began November 8, 2011 Justice Alito - the Amendment should be understood as prohibiting “every unjustifiable intrusion by the government upon the privacy of the individual.” Granting Appeals Explaining the Decision Holding the Oral Argument Writing the Opinion Katz v. United States Alderman v. United States United States v. Knotts United States v. Karo Alone, the Nine justices state their opinions and reasoning, and then come up with a decision based on majority. Meeting in Conference Both sides of the case prepare arguments which may relate to previous cases: Briefing The Case http://www.supremecourt.gov/opinions/11pdf/10-1259.pdf Reviewing Appeals Justice Sotomayor - "the Government obtains information by physically intruding on a constitutionally protected area.” Using a GPS goes against the Fourth Amendment It was a reasonable search In the case of Katz v. United States, it was said that the Fourth Amendment protects a person’s“reasonable expectation of privacy” Case of Knotts v. United States, “‘[a] person traveling in an automobile on public thoroughfares has no reasonable expectation of privacy in his movements from one place to another.’ ” The Fourth Amendment protects the “right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures.” The government's physical intrusion on an "effect" for the purpose of attaining information constitutes a "search". This type of encroachment on an area enumerated in the Amendment would have been considered a search within the meaning of the Amendment at the time it was adopted. Final Outcome: 5 to 4 vote that it went against the Fourth Amendment Releasing the Opinion Rule of Four At least four of the nine justices have to vote in favor of the case for it to be heard "The Court concludes, the installation and use of the GPS device constituted a search."
Transcript: Verdict Issue: Question being asked to the supreme court for it to decide Does the first amendment protect a public school students right to free speech even though it could be vulgar in nature Arguements Of Each Side: How did they not violate their rights?

Transcript: American Insurance Association v. Garamendi In 1999 the California legislature enacted the Holocaust Victim Insurance Relief Act (HVIRA) in an attempt to facilitate Holocaust-era insurance claims by California residents. The Act required all insurance companies doing business in California that sold policies to people in Europe between 1920 and 1945 to make public all of those policies, including the names of policy owners and the status of the policies. A group of insurance companies and a trade organization sued, saying that only the federal government, with its jurisdiction over commerce and foreign affairs, had the right to enact such legislation. They also said the law violated the Due Process and Equal Protection clauses of the U.S. Constitution because the companies, if they failed to comply, could lose their insurance licenses. The District Court ruled for the insurance companies; the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals reversed. Everson v Board of Education A New Jersey law allowed reimbursements of money to parents who sent their children to school on buses operated by the public transportation system. Children who attended Catholic schools also qualified for this transportation subsidy. 1946 Did the New Jersey statute violate the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment as made applicable to the states through the Fourteenth Amendment? No. A divided Court held that the law did not violate the Constitution. After detailing the history and importance of the Establishment Clause, Justice Black argued that services like bussing and police and fire protection for parochial schools are "separate and so indisputably marked off from the religious function" that for the state to provide them would not violate the First Amendment. The law did not pay money to parochial schools, nor did it support them directly in anyway. It was simply a law enacted as a "general program" to assist parents of all religions with getting their children to school. Question Conclusion Did California's passage of the HVIRA interfere with the federal government's sovereignty over foreign affairs established by Article I of the Constitution? Facts of the Case Question Facts of the Case Legal provision: Article 2, Section 1: Executive Power Yes (5-4) California's HVIRA interferes with the president's ability to conduct the nation's foreign policy and is therefore preempted. They decided that it was not within the state's power to deal with foreign relations, and there was actually a concflict with HVIRA and the presiden'ts foreign policy. Conclusion
