- Roper v. Simmons
Fascinating on so many levels:
- the ultimate issue is interesting in its own right
- the question of over-ruling earlier decisions
- the (ambulatory) interpretation of the US Constitution
- the reference to International Law (including a Convention which the US hasn't ratified - along with Somalia, the only countries in the world not to).
But I love it more for the language of the dissent and the (dysfunctional?) relationships and interaction between the judges.
