FANTASY SUPREME COURT LEAGUE – 2013 Supreme Court Cases and Legal Developments

Featuring: SEAN CARTER, Esq., Humorist at Law


In this unique presentation, Mr. Carter humorously recaps the most significant cases decided by the high court during its most recent term.

Stay up to date on some of the most fascinating cases in recent memory, including the case that made Justice Thomas break his seven-year silence from the bench.

And, rather than just passively sitting through a lecture on the intricacies of hot button cases, you can choose to take a more active role by participating in the famous (or perhaps, infamous) Fantasy Supreme Court League. Prizes are awarded – a great time is had by all – and you’ll learn, too!

Explore the Following “Hot- Button” Cases heard by the Supreme Court:
     1. Same- Sex Marriage
     2. Voting Rights Act
     3. Affirmative Action
     4. Compulsory DNA Testing
     5. Drug-Sniffing Dogs
     6. Human Gene Patents
         And So Much More!
