Bruen, Dobbs, and the Future of Rights in the Roberts Court 2022

Product ID: CA3354R6
Presented By: State Bar of Wisconsin PINNACLE

Bruen, Dobbs, and the Future of Rights in the Roberts Court

In two cases consuming the nation – New York State Rifle & Pistol Association, Inc. v. Bruen and Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health – the U.S. Supreme Court announced dramatic new interpretations of rights guaranteed by the Constitution. The decision in Dobbs expanded states’ powers by rejecting a previously recognized individual right. The decision in  Bruen curtailed states’ rights by expanding another individual right. While seemingly opposed on the surface, the two cases actually display a consistent approach for rights analysis that represents a vast departure from past practices.
