Each year, more than 7,000 cases are appealed to the US Supreme
Court. But only 100 to 150 are accepted. The decisions the Supreme
Court makes change the course of US history and shape the country
we live in. This title introduces readers to Tinker v. Des Moines,
a landmark case that clarified American students' freedom of speech
and right to protest in schools. Chapters investigate the court's
ruling, including its compelling backstory and appeals process, the
political climate at the time due to the Vietnam War and racial
protests, and the aftermath of this important decision. Key players
are profiled, including students John Tinker, Mary Beth Tinker, and
Christopher Eckhardt, and attorneys Allan Herrick, Craig Sawyer,
Val Schoenthal, and Dan Johnston. Sidebars highlight key
Constitutional amendments and other relevant issues that further
readers' understanding of the case's significance. Landmark Supreme
Court Cases is a series in Essential Library, an imprint of ABDO
