As usual, as end of semester approaches, I have limited time left to
cover First Amendment. (probably about two weeks - six hours)
So, Question - if one had only one case each to use to teach the First
Amendment Speech, Religion, Association, which would you choose?
FYI The list I have been generally used for my two week spring mad dash
through the first amendment have been: (okay this is five), although
sometimes I add others.
o NYT v. United States, Obrien, Ward v. Rock against Racism (Freedom
o Smith (Religion)
o Dale (association)
But I am never really satisfied - for example - NYT is atypical because
of prior restraint, O'Brien is out of date, but what other case for
speech/conduct distinction. (Texas I've used sometimes, but it only
works once you've read O'Brien). Etc, etc.
So, Question - if you had only one case (two tops) for each 1st Am.
topic - what would you recommend. - off list replies are fine.

Subject: The History of Advocating Congressional Overrides
Besides Marshall--perhaps not really in earnest--and Robert
LaFollette, which historical figures--politicians, scholars, and
citizens--advocated some form of congressional override of Supreme Court
decisions? Off-List replies are fine and I assume I can share the
