The Forum assignment addresses the fifth course objective, specifically, the operation of the Supreme Court as part of the Judicial Branch of the government. The task this week is to discuss how the Supreme Court determines which cases to hear, which cases not to take, and why. Select a recent Supreme Court case from "Recent Decisions" on the Supreme Court website http://www.supremecourt.gov/, and explain why the Supreme Court accepted it for adjudication (not what the case is about).
