Select one (1) Supreme Court case from the list of cases in “Scenarios from Selected Supreme Court Cases” (see the attached document). You will analyze this one (1) Supreme Court case from the perspective of five of the major concepts we have learned in the first half of the course. These major concepts are:
Living under a government that protects person and property, no exceptions
Living under a government that does not harm person and property
Religion
Personal Liberty
Self-Government
Instead of an introduction, simply state the name of the case that you will analyze. Then write five paragraphs, each one devoted to one of the concepts listed above, and in the order listed above.
Each paragraph must consist of the following five parts, and in this order:
State which side of the case will promote the concept you are discussing; if the concept does not apply to your case, then state that it does not apply.
Explain why this side promotes this concept, or why this concept does not apply to the case (using details from the case–include names or descriptions of people and governments involved).
Provide a primary source quotation from the textbook that defines the concept you are discussing (this should not be a quotation describing your case).
Explain what the quotation says, using your own words.
Re-state which side will promote this concept (or re-state that it does not apply) and the reason why, but this time when you re-state the reason why, use part of the quotation you just used instead of using your own words. (See the sample paragraph that follows for an example of how to do this part.)
This is a sample paragraph for the second paragraph of the paper, using an imaginary case (in which Professor Iachetta is imprisoned by the federal government without trial for teaching the American system of government).
In Iachetta v. U.S., Iachetta promotes living under a government that does not harm the person and property of citizens without trial. The reason why Iacheta promotes this feature is that the federal government is harming Professor Iachetta’s person by imprisoning him without trial. As William Penn says, “Liberty [is] … to be freed in person and estate from arbitrary violence and oppression” (13B). This means that we need to live under a government that does not harm the person or property of its citizens without trial, if we want to be free. So Iachetta promotes this feature in this case, because Iachetta is suffering “arbitrary violence and oppression” at the hands of the federal government.
Follow this pattern for all five major paragraphs, and you are done.
Note: If you select an abortion case, remember that in the tradition we are studying, and unborn child (or fetus) is regarded as a person with rights (see Activity 9C).
Note on citation: at the end of your quotation, cite the quotation by using the activity number and letter of the quotation as it appears in the textbook and place these in quotation marks followed by a period.
Note on plagiarism: do not present anyone else’s work as your own, and do not write this paper together with anyone else. If you do so, you will receive a penalty and may receive a 0 on the assignment and be reported to the college for violating the student code of conduct.
