Here is an article that explains activism and restraint. This is a great article to read before you start the project.
This project will be a bit different than the others. Below you will find ten court cases that some consider the top 10 cases of all time that have gone before the Supreme Court. You need to write a short paragraph for each that sums up the case. Be sure to include if the case overturns any other case and whether you believe it is Judicial Activism or Judicial Restraint.
You will see these court cases on a quiz, test and final exam.
