Abstract

This article analyzes the individual cases reviewed by the Supreme Court under the tutelage of Chief Justice William Rehnquist by homing in on some of the issues unique to each case and identifying recurring themes. These individual cases are then viewed in light of what they reveal about the jurisprudence and methodology of the Supreme Court and of the individual Justices. This article also attempts to identify probable effects of the decisions, intended as well as unintended, and the difficulties created as well as those left unresolved.
