The Sixth Edition of Constitutional Law was published in early 2020 and is current through the end of October Term 2018 and includes the decisions through June 2019. This Supplement focuses on the three terms since then: October Term 2019, October Term 2020, and October Term 2021.

There have been many major constitutional rulings in these three terms, and especially in the most recent term. Chapter 1 includes the Court’s decision from June 2022 which greatly expands the scope of the Second Amendment, New York Rifle and Pistol Association v. Bruen. The Chapter also includes a discussion of three important cases concerning the constitutional requirements for standing: Uzuegbunam v. Preczewski, California v. Texas, and Transunion v. Ramirez. It also includes the discussion of third-party standing from the abortion case, June Medical Services L.L.C. v. Russo.

Chapter 3, on executive power, includes the two major cases concerning subpoenas of financial institutions doing business with President Trump, Trump v. Vance and Trump v. Mazars USA. It includes an important case concerning the appointments power, United States v. Arthrex. It also includes a major case limiting Congress’s power to restrict presidential removal of agency heads, Seila Law LLC v. Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and a subsequent case applying it, Collins v. Yellen.

Chapter 5 includes Ramos v. Louisiana, where the Court held that the Sixth Amendment’s unanimous jury requirement applies to the states.

Chapter 6 includes a case on the Takings Clause, Cedar Point Nursery v. Hassim.

Chapter 8 presents Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, which overruled Roe v. Wade.

Chapter 9 presents new cases about freedom of speech: City of Austin v. Reagan National Advertising, on the distinction between content-based and content-neutral laws; Shurtleff v. City of Boston, regarding what is government speech; Mahanoy Area School Dist. v. B.L., concerning First Amendment protection for student speech over social media; and Americans for Prosperity v. Bonta, which invalidated a requirement for non-profits in California to disclose their donors.

Finally, Chapter 10, which focuses on religion, includes the many cases from the last three years concerning the Free Exercise Clause. In Fulton v. City of Philadelphia, the Court clarified and applied the test used for this constitutional provision. In Our Lady of Guadalupe School v. Morrissey-Berru, the Court said that religious schools cannot be sued under employment discrimination laws for the choices it makes as to their teachers. There also are two rulings from the Court invalidating restrictions on religious gatherings, imposed to stop the spread of COVID-19. Also, Espinoza v. Montana Department of Revenue overruled a decision of the Montana Supreme Court, striking down a state law which would have provided tax credits to parents who sent their children to religious schools.

Similarly, in Carson v. Makin, the Court found it violated free exercise of religion for Maine to fund students attending secular private schools, but deny money for religious schools. Last, presented in the section on the Establishment Clause is Kennedy v. Bremerton School District, which found that it violated free speech and free exercise of religion to punish a high school football coach for prayers on the field after games.
