ACLU Summary of the 1998-1999 Supreme Court Term

On June 28, the Supreme Court handed down its final rulings for the 1999 term in a flourish of historic decisions that included striking down a "partial-birth" abortion law, upholding by a 7-2 vote the Miranda decision, and according private organizations the right to exclude members whose known sexual orientation was considered to be at odds with the organization's values (see the June 30, 2000 Scout Report). The ACLU provides an advocacy-based summary of the court's last term, commenting on the likely consequences of each decision of the past year for issues of civil liberties. Because of the potential impact on consitutional freedoms, the ACLU summary also examines some lower profile cases.
