U.S. Supreme Court Decisions for May 1996

The full text of two recent U.S. Supreme Court decisions that could have far reaching effects are available via the Internet. Docket 94-1039, Romer, Governor of Colorado, et al. v. Evans et al. struck down part of the Colorado State Constitution that prevented the passage of new anti- discrimination laws against homosexuals. Docket 94-896, BMW of North America, Inc. v. Gore set standards for determining when punitive damages are "grossly excessive." The Syllabus (headnotes), opinion, and dissent, are available in both cases.
