Which cases are covered by this quiz?
Hamdan v Rumsfeld through Gibson v Florida
Dr. Davis, will you post the rest of your notes from the Legislature section? The notes under 'course material' only cover three of the cases.
can anyone explain in their owns words the meaning of a political question. i think i have a pretty good handle on the meaning from the book but i just want to make sure.
It is a question that under the constitution is left to another political branch to solve
Can anyone provide an example of a signing statement that we discussed in class?
Here is the link to my lecture notes on the legislative branch:http://userpages.umbc.edu/~davisj/legis1.htmlI'll post it on the main page soon.
Yes, that's right a political question is an issue that the court believes should be decided by congress or the president. The Court says that it does so because the text of the constitution delegates the issue to another branch.
if i recall, we didn't discuss much about gibson v. florida in class. how much of this case do we need to know?
Prof Davis said we only need to know the material covered in class, which was basically an overview, the issues and decision... and, of course, why it was different from the other ruling and reasons for it.
Yes, that is a good description of what you need to know about Gibson.
Thanks! Wasn't trying to speak for you, though!
