Harriet Miers Nominated To US Supreme Court
New Supreme Court Nomination
On October 3rd, 2005, President Bush nominated his personal lawyer Harriet Miers to the US Surpreme Court. Miers has never served as a judge and her stance on legal issues are unknown to all except perhaps Bush's inner circle. Read More | Harriet Miers' Enron problem

With Roberts as Chief Justice and Miers likely to get confirmed, there could be significant changes in the US legal system. Among the cases coming before the Court in the next session are Ayotte v. Planned Parenthood, which deals with abortion rights, Gonzales v. Oregon, which deals with euthenasia, Rumsfeld v. Forum for Academic and Institutional Rights, which deals with military recruiters in schools, and Hudson v. Michigan which deals with deals with police searches. There are also likely to be cases that deal with military tribunals in Guantanamo and the right of the President to declare US citizens enemy combatants, allowing indefinite imprisonment without a trial.
