"Asset confiscation permits jurisdictions to seize or freeze properties which are either the mechanism or profits of crime, such as various kinds of vehicles (cars, boats, planes) to transport illegal drugs or weapons. This initiative plays a critical role in the government's efforts to combat certain kinds of crime. At the same time, it has cut some of the mounting costs associated with financially motivated crime. And it is an effort to remove the financial incentive from some types of crime. Initiatives from all 50 states are included with contrasts between state and federal programs. A practical guide that addresses ethical issues and codes for both the criminal defense litigator and criminal prosecutor."

Series: Landmark law cases & American society

"In the wake of Brown v. Board of Education, racial equality in American public education appeared to have a bright future. But for many that brightness dimmed considerably following the Supreme Court's decision in Milliken v. Bradley (1974), which emerged from Detroit's efforts to use cross-district busing to desegregate its schools and was the first such case to originate outside the South. In its controversial 5-4 decision, the Supreme ruled that, since there was no evidence that the suburban school districts had deliberately engaged in a policy of segregation, the lower court's remedy of busing school children across municipal lines was 'wholly impermissible' and not justified by Brown--which the Court said could only address de jure, not de facto segregation. In this first book-length account of the case, Joyce Baugh provides a richly detailed account of how and why Milliken came about and analyzes its subsequent impact on both civil rights jurisprudence and public education in American cities."

'"Great cases like hard cases make bad law' declared Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. in his dissenting opinion in the Northern Securities antitrust case of 1904. His maxim argues that those cases which ascend to the Supreme Court of the United States by virtue of their national importance, interest, or other extreme circumstance, make for poor bases upon which to construct a general law. Frequently, such cases catch the public's attention because they raise important legal issues, and they become landmark decisions from a doctrinal standpoint. Yet from a practical perspective, great cases could create laws poorly suited for far less publicly tantalizing but far more common situations.

In Do Great Cases Make Bad Law?, Lackland H. Bloom, Jr. tests Justice Holmes' dictum by analyzing in detail the history of the Supreme Court's great cases, from Marbury v. Madison in 1803, to National Federation of Independent Business v. Sebelius, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act case, in 2012. He treats each case with its own chapter, and explains why the Court found a case compelling, how the background and historical context affected the decision and its place in constitutional law and history, how academic scholarship has treated the case, and how the case integrates with and reflects off of Justice Holmes' famous statement. In doing so, Professor Bloom draws on the whole of the Supreme Court's decisional history to form an intricate scholarly understanding of the holistic significance of the Court's reasoning in American constitutional law."

"Margaret Morgan was born in freedom's shadow. Her parents were slaves of John Ashmore, a prosperous Maryland mill owner who freed many of his slaves in the last years of his life. Ashmore never laid claim to Margaret, who eventually married a free black man and moved to Pennsylvania. Then, John Ashmore's widow sent Edward Prigg to Pennsylvania to claim Margaret as a runaway. Prigg seized Margaret and her children, one of them born in Pennsylvania and forcibly removed them to Maryland in violation of Pennsylvania law. In the ensuing uproar, Prigg was indicted for kidnapping under Pennsylvania's personal liberty law. Maryland, however, blocked his extradition, setting the stage for a remarkable Supreme Court case in 1842."
