The real Clarence Thomas confirmation veracity meets performance reality by Christopher E Smith ( )
4 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 738 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Justice Clarence Thomas is a controversial figure on the U.S. Supreme Court because of sexual harassment allegations raised against him during his 1991 Senate confirmation hearings. This study avoids unanswerable questions about Thomas's past by making a straightforward comparison of his confirmation testimony about his judical philosophy against his subsequent judical opinions. This comparison raises serious questions about Thomas's truthfulness during his sworn testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee
The Detroit school busing case : Milliken v. Bradley and the controversy over desegregation by Joyce A Baugh ( Book )
2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 464 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Overview: In the wake of Brown v. Board of Education, racial equality in American public education appeared to have a bright future. But for many that brightness dimmed considerably following the Supreme Court's decision in Milliken v. Bradley (1974), which emerged from Detroit's efforts to use cross-district busing to desegregate its schools and was the first such case to originate outside the South. In its controversial 5-4 decision, the Supreme ruled that, since there was no evidence that the suburban school districts had deliberately engaged in a policy of segregation, the lower court's remedy of busing school children across municipal lines was "wholly impermissible" and not justified by Brown--which the Court said could only address de jure, not de facto segregation. In this first book-length account of the case, Joyce Baugh provides a richly detailed account of how and why Milliken came about and analyzes its subsequent impact on both civil rights jurisprudence and public education in American cities

The Rehnquist court and criminal justice by Christopher E Smith ( )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
By analyzing the perspectives and influential decisions of individual justices on the Rehnquist Court (1986-2005), this volume reveals how a divided Supreme Court limited the scope of rights affecting criminal justice without fulfilling conservatives' goal of eliminating foundational concepts established during the Warren Court era. The era's generally conservative Supreme Court preserved rights in several contexts because individual justices do not necessarily view all constitutional rights issues through a simple, consistent philosophical
