Eye on the High Court

In this collection, veteran attorney David Slade discusses cases on the Supreme Court docket that focus on a range of human concerns, from gender-based discrimination and sexual harassment to corporate foul play and telemarketing fraud. Slade deftly provides a background on historic landmark cases that serve as a precedent for resolving these issues. In the process, he helps readers come away with a better understanding of Supreme Court procedures as well as a working knowledge of the Constitution and the vested rights they hold as Americans.
