New to the Third Edition
- New Supreme Court cases:
- Schwarzenegger v. Entertainment Merchants’ Association, which concerns the constitutionality of a California law banning the sale of violent video games to minors. This case takes up where Ginsberg v. New York (1968) left off.
- J.D.B. v. North Carolina, concerning how to apply Miranda when police interrogated a 13-year-old special ed student at school.
- Camreta v. Greene, which will decide whether the usual Fourth Amendment requirements, including the warrant requirement, apply when police want to interview a child about child abuse or neglect allegations
- Graham v. Florida, in which the Court held that the Eighth Amendment’s Cruel and Unusual Punishments clause does not permit a juvenile offender to be sentenced to life in prison without parole for a non-homicide crime. The decision, which relies heavily on Roper v. Simmons, was a striking departure from the Court’s long-standing “death is different” jurisprudence as well as a signal of Justice Kennedy’s enduring belief in the potential for young offenders to be redeemed.
