Supreme Court Decisions

It's always interesting when June rolls around a the Supreme Court releases a lot of decisions for the year. You'll hear the decisions reported and interpreted all over the media, but it's worthwhile to go read them yourselves. For example, last week's decision on eminent domain has received quite a bit of attention, but I doubt that many have read the decision and the dissent.

If you haven't read court decisions before, it's time to start. They really aren't hard to read and you'll get better with a bit of practice. Reading the decisions gives a much better idea of the reasoning behind the rulings and it helps solidify my thinking on these issues.
