However, Justice Goldberg took a more refined approach than Justice Douglas, focusing solely on the Ninth and Fourteenth Amendments. He argued that the Connecticut statute infringed upon the un-enumerated yet fundamental right of privacy in marriage, directly opposing the Ninth Amendment. When the Fourteenth Amendment was enacted, states were prohibited from "abridging fundamental personal liberties" guaranteed by the Bill of Rights (Griswold v. Connecticut). Justice Goldberg asserted that these two amendments in conjunction were sufficient evidence of the unconstitutionality of the Connecticut statute. (Griswold v.

Obergefell v. Hodges (2014) The Obergefell v. Hodges (2014) case involved the marriage of same sex couples. Groups of same sex couples sued their state agencies to challenge the constitutionality of them refusing to recognize legal same sex marriages. Plaintiffs argued that the states’ statutes violated the Equal Protection Clause and Due Process Clause of the 14th Amendment. One group of plaintiffs also brought claims under the Civil Rights Act. “The U.S. court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit reversed and held that the states’ bans on the same-sex marriage and refusal to recognize marriages performed in other states did not violate the couples’ Fourteenth Amendment rights to equal protection and due process.” The justices that were on court
An atheist from California has filed a federal lawsuit seeking to remove the phrase “In God We Trust” on American currency, claiming it is unconstitutional. The lawsuit was filed against the U.S. Congress and Treasury Department by Michael Newdow, 62, a Sacramento attorney, on Jan. 11 in Akron, Ohio on behalf of 41 plaintiffs. Newdow claims that the phrase “In God We Trust” violates the First Amendment and the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA). The lawsuit further argues that the defendants have “substantially burdened Plaintiffs in the exercise of their Atheistic beliefs” by requiring them to “personally bear a religious message that is the antithesis of what they consider to be religious truth.” Newdow had successfully sought to

The court ruling disapproved with states banning interracial marriage because it was unconstitutional. In spite of the fact that a privilege to marry is not listed in the Constitution, the Court said that such a privilege is covered under the Fourteenth Amendment in light of the fact that such choices are vital to our survival and our values. Accordingly, they should essentially reside with the individual instead of with the state. This choice is a conflict with the popular argument that something cannot be an actual constitutional right unless it is spelled out straightforwardly in the U.S. Constitution. It additionally stands out amongst the most imperative models on the general thought of common uniformity, clarifying that essential social equality is basic to our reality and cannot really be restricted on the grounds that a few people trust that their god can 't help
Connecticut is the landmark case that led to Roe v. Wade. The case argued that it was unconstitutional to outlaw contraceptives of any sort. “On June 7, 1965 the Supreme Court argued that the law which imposed criminal sanctions upon any person who uses any drug, medical article or instrument for the purpose of preventing conception is unconstitutional” (Roraback). Also, the Supreme Court declared that the Connecticut law was unconstitutional because it restricted contraceptive use by married couples and this violates their right to privacy (Fein). “The decision spawned additional vexing ligation seeking expansion of the right to privacy to include possession of obscene materials in the home, personal reputation, abortion, confidentiality regarding drug use, and homosexual sodomy” (Fein).
The first of the two cases was originally filed on April 23, 1990. In Coleman v. Brown, a United States magistrate judge found that the CDCR did not provide adequate healthcare to their inmates and therefore was in violation of the United States’ Eighth Amendment (Harvard Law Review, 2010). The second case of Plata v. Brown was filed in 2001. This case followed the precedent set in the Coleman case. Plata v. Brown argued that the
