Read the textbook (Ch 9) about Selection of Federal Judges and Policy-making and the Courts. Supreme Court Justices (Links to an external site.) and their biographies are on the site ITT Chicago – Kent College of Law. Site also includes court cases. Pick a justice and discuss their background. Does the justice display judicial activism or judicial restraint. Then look over Landmark Cases (Links to an external site.) site and the US Courts (Links to an external site.)government site and discuss a case that caught your interest.

Assignment must be at least 250 words, and any sources used must be documented with MLA citation and parenthetical (intext) citations.

I chose Justice Clarence Thomas to make it easier for you to write. and the case I chose is below:
Goss v. Lopez (1975)
Holding: Students are entitled to certain due process rights.

Nine students at an Ohio public school received 10-day suspensions for disruptive behavior without due process protections. The Supreme Court ruled for the students, saying that once the state provides an education for all of its citizens, it cannot deprive them of it without ensuring due process protections.

*This case relates to students.
