Out of all of the supreme court cases, I think the most important case was Roe vs. Wade case because it handled the abortion laws for a while. A case I believe is least important because Tinker vs. Des Moines because it is just a freedom of expression and everyone has freedom of expression, so this case is not as important to me as the other cases.
I believe that Miranda vs. Arizona 1966 was the most important because if a person is not informed of their rights, then they are subject to self-incrimination. This court case also dealt with the Sixth Amendment with the fact that a person has the right to have the Assistance of Counsel for their defense. I believe that Roe v. Wade is the least important because all it did in my opinion was create political issues in our country. If an expecting mother wants to abort the baby, it is their opinion to do so or not.
The Tinker vs. Des Moines (1969) trial is the most important case that our American Government class has discussed. It was brought to the Supreme Court and was dismissed. This, because they ruled the school districts actions as reasonable. It was only a peaceful protest held by students wearing black armbands to support the truce in Vietnam(1965).
The least important court case that has been discussed was the Schenck Vs. Us (1919). Schenck was a prominent socialist who passed flyers to American servicemen recently drafted to fight in WWI. It was ruled as national insubordination.
Regents of University of California v Bakke(1978) The University saved 16 spots for racial people rather than whites, but even if a white person was more qualified for the position the racial person would be accepted. This was violating the 14th Amendment Equal Protection Clause which is a big topic today with segregation. This is why its the most important court case.
Bush V Gore(2000) This case dealed with recounting votes in Florida for the presidential election and had no signifigance in any part of history even though it dealed with the 14th Amendment. Nobody looks back at this court case. This is why its the least important court case.
I believe the Roe v Wade was very detrimental towards women´s rights and advancement in their role as an American citizen. It is impeccable to believe that only certain situations could criminalize a woman´s personal choice. The least important would be Tinker v Des Moines. I believe so due to the unreasonable circumstances.
I believe that the Brown v. Board of Education case in 1954 was the most important Supreme Court case. I believe this because it was instrumental in establishing more equal civil rights in public places across the U.S. This case also helped to provide students across the United States with an equal opportunity to education. This case also helped to begin the movement of equal treatment for all people in all public places such as water fountains, bathrooms, stores, and of course schools. This case was also very important because it helped to identify what the 14th amendment was actually saying.
Brown vs The Board of Education is the most important supreme court case decision. The decision was on the fact that we need to desegregate schools and other public facilities. The reason this is the most important decision is because it desegregates schools and makes america free again. It makes us more of an equal nation. No longer will the blacks have the lower portion of everything we will finally be equal. No race is greater than the other.
In my opinion, the Brown v. Board of Education case was the most important. This was the case that really started the integration of public facilities and areas, and began the process of desegregation in the U.S. I think that the Tinker v. Des Moines case was not as important as Brown v. Board of Education.
I think that the Schenck vs US 1919 case was the most important because it delt with the 1st amendment. The first amendment says, "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a vedress of grievances." The first amendment has constantly been an issue because not all of the things you say are protected. Schenck was putting up provacative flyers concerning WW1. He was trying to sabotage the draft. The recent Espionage Act had just been put in place which says that you can't use abusive language against the federal government. This amendment brings up contravery because, although you're allowed to say whatever you please, you are not excused from the negative consequences of what you say.
I believe that the case "Miranda vs. Arizona". Every person,no matter what the crime, should be read their rights, so they understand that they do not have to be a witness against yourself. These rights are given to give the most fair trial as possible.
Miranda vs. Arizona (1966) was the most important one because it established the Miranda rights still used today to protect criminals. As a probable criminal myself, these rights help to keep the process fair, and that is important when being convicted. With out these rights, the defendant would not be able to defend themselves in a court of law, which is unconstitutional. Also, it's in Law and Order, so why not read them ever single blinking time?
I believe that one of the most important court cases is Miranda vs. the state of Arizona in 1966. I think that all incriminated people should know all of the rights that do not get taken away when in police custody. To me, the Roe vs. Wade court case was much more insignificant than Miranda vs. Arizona. Miranda vs. Arizona changed the whole incrimination process in comparison to Rove vs. Wade.
A court case that was not that important was Tinker vs. Des Moines. In the case, students could not protest the war even though it was peaceful. This case is not that important because it does not effect the constitution that much. It only establishes "clear and present danger" and does not establish a new type of law or right like Miranda vs. Arizona or Gideon vs. Wainwright.
The case I felt was most important was Brown V Board of Education. Despite the 14th amendment stating that everyone was to be treated equally by law, many "colored" places were very much inferior to their "white" counterparts, including schools. This case made it so schools legally had to just be schools; no white schools with the best equipment and black schools with equipment from the 19th century, but rather schools for all colors.
As for least important, I pick none of them. Every case here, from relatively small stuff to the biggest ones involving our president, feels important.
I believe the most important case that we have discussed is the Plessy vs. Ferguson case of 1896. This case was about the civil rights of all U.S. citizens and Plessy argued that segregation should be illegal. Ferguson argued that there was nothing wrong with segregation and the Supreme court sided with them ans stated that segregation was ¨separate but equal.¨ This case opened the eyes of the citizens to show that people were not treated equally. If was one of the reasons that sparked the start of the civil rights movement. I believe the Tinker vs. Des Moines case was the least important case that we have discussed because these students were peacefully showing that they wanted the Vietnam war to end. They were not endangering anyone and did not deserve to be punished for their actions.
Brown vs board of education in my opinion is the most important due to if it had not happen it would have taken a lot longer to desegregate public places as well as most of the world. It aloud for people to connect better as well as work better with each other. Many improvements have been made including education, economic growth, and demestic growth.
I believe that Plessy vs Ferguson is the most important court case. This is because it was the case that started segregation and this is important because it gave the later judges information to review during court cases similar to this case. I also think that without this case the Brown vs Board case would have ended much differently if the Plessy vs Ferguson case had not happened. Plessy v Ferguson case provided the judges with vital information for cases that would happen later so without this case many of the later cases could have had a very different outcome.
I feel the Marbury v. Madison of 1803 case was the most important decision in US history, because without these case all other important and historical case would be for nothing. This case set up the foundation for judicial review, the ability for federal courts to find laws constitutional or unconstitutional. By making this decision the Judicial branch became equal to the executive and legislative branch. If this case was not made then the Plessy v Ferguson or Board of Education cases would be void and the United States would be in a dark and sad era. This is why the Marbury v Madison case is the most important case in US history.
The court case that I think is more important than all the others is the Brown vs. Board of Education case in 1954. This case made segregation in schools illegal. I feel like this is the most important case because segregated schools affected the learning of the students. Psychological studies show that that colored girls is segregated schools had a low racial self-esteem, and that separation of races created a dangerous inferiority complexes. This affected the colored the ability to learn. Now that there is no more segregation, everyone gets an equal learning chance.
I believe that the Plessy v. Ferguson case of 1896 was one of the most important because it created a pathway for segregation to become a legal normal way of life for both races. This case promoted public segregation and created and difficult future for all African Americans, mainly in the south. However I believe that this case also allowed African Americans to come together and become harder workers. This case changed the lives of many, but allowed the race to become stronger and work harder to fight for their futures and better their lives.
