“It is not so often in law that so few have quickly changed so much.” Justice Breyer’s statement during the 2006 Supreme Court season may be a valid observation of the impact Chief Justice Roberts and Associate Justice Alito may have had on constitutional interpretation. The presentation of this independent study will focus on specific areas of law that have been impacted by President George W. Bush’s appointments to the Supreme Court. Decisions that were impacted by the two recent appointments will be analyzed to determine the extent to which the Chief Executive can reverse precedents.
