Summary
A detailed look at the Rehnquist Court's key figures, rulings, and major changes to U.S. constitutional law. A pawn in the changing landscapes of the last four presidencies, the Rehnquist Court has become a battleground for intense partisan politics. As the nation hung in constitutional crisis during the 2000 presidential election, the Court embodied the fierce struggle between conservative and liberal forces before handing down its landmark rulings. Has the Rehnquist Court, which followed the liberal Warren and Burger Courts, achieved a conservative counterrevolution? The answer to that question depends on one's political perspective, observes legal historian and political scientist Thomas R. Hensley. But without a doubt, the Rehnquist Court has been a war zone. Fourteen justices have served during the Rehnquist era, which began in 1986 during the Reagan administration and continues today. Presidents Reagan and Bush appointed conservative justices and set in motion an assault on the "ultra-liberal" decisions made by the two previous courts. But President Clinton appointed two moderate Democrats, slowing the conservative juggernaut. The result? One of the most fascinating, contentious, and crucial periods in the history of the U.S. Supreme Court
