Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0393975460, Paperback)

More than just an ideal supplement to Constitutional Law and Politics, Supreme Court Watch provides students with substantive analysis of cases as they unfold before the Supreme Court. Each annual edition contains excerpts from the justices' opinions regarding the most important cases of the past three terms, as well as a preview of forthcoming cases. Supreme Court Watch is an indispensable resource for any course on law, legal studies, and the judiciary.

Cases highlighted in the 1999 edition of the Watch include:

* Articles of Impeachment against President William Jefferson Clinton (detail of the articles of impeachment recommended by the House Judiciary Committee and approved by the House of Representatives)
* Department of Commerce v. US House of Representatives (on the constitutionality of using statistical sampling in the census)
* Alden v. Maine (on whether states can be sued in federal courts and the immunity of states from lawsuits filed in state courts seeking to enforce federal rights)
* Chicago v. Morales (on the constitutionality of Chicago's Gang Congregation Ordinance)
* Knowles v. Iowa, Wyoming v. Hougton, and Florida v. White (on the scope of the Fourth Amendment's application to automobile searches)
* Saenz v. Roe (on the constitutionality of an amendment to California's ADFC program, which limited welfare benefits to new residents)
