Key Supreme Court Cases

An "online extra" companion to U.S. Supreme Court Case Studies
(Holt, Rinehart & Winston, 2005)

In U.S. Supreme Court Case Studies, we offered in-depth profiles of 31 critical U.S. Supreme Court cases. Here are the "online extras"—discussions of other cases prepared for students to explore. They are short and direct, written for middle school students, but appropriate for high school students as well. They should help you better understand these cases and their important roles in the Supreme Court's history.
