United States Supreme Court: original jurisdiction cases and materials
3 volumes. Updated by new edition.
This three-volume reference set is a compilation of all U.S. Supreme Court cases in which the SCOTUS had original jurisdiction. Spanning from 1793 to 2010, these cases are presented chronologically and deal with litigation where the parties are ambassadors and consuls, citizens of different U.S. states, one state against citizens of another state, a state against the U.S., or two or more states. For each SCOTUS case, all court opinions are reprinted and a case history is also included. Also included are essays that explain original jurisdiction in the SCOTUS and an index to all cited cases.
