The Essential Supreme Court Cases: The 200 Most Important Cases for State Prisoners. The purpose of this book is to provide a U.S. Supreme Court research tool specially designed for prisoners. It is also very useful for law students, defense attorneys, and those prosecuting civil rights claims on behalf of prisoners. One of the most pressing needs for a prisoner doing legal research is to find out how the Supreme Court has ruled on a particular issue. This book meets that need by listing the most relevant Supreme Court cases by issue. Then, the cases are numbered and listed in chronological order to make them both easy to access and easy for the reader to see how the law has developed. The most commonly requested cases are printed in full, such as Strickland v Washington et. al. Most of the cases are directly quotable. The final two sections list all of the cases in alphabetical order, by Plaintiff and by Respondent. The cases chosen for inclusion are heavily weighted toward recent case law and are among the most cited cases in use today. By reviewing the cases included here, the reader can find all of the relevant Supreme Court precedents concerning the issue being researched.
