For help locating U.S. Supreme Court cases, see: Supreme Court of the United States---- https://www.supremecourt.gov/opinions/opinions.aspx Justia----- https://supreme.justia.com/ After selecting a case, you must write a case brief /analysis.

How has the case impacted our government and/or our citizens? Do you agree with the Court's analysis? Using Sources Formatting & Sources Please write your paper in the APA format. As part of your research, you may refer to the course material for supporting evidence, but you must also use at least two credible, outside sources and cite them using APA format as well. Please include a mix of both primary and secondary sources, with at least one source from a scholarly peer-reviewed journal. If you use any Study.com lessons as sources, please also cite them in APA (including the lesson title and instructor's name). Primary sources are first-hand accounts such as interviews, advertisements, speeches, company documents, statements, and press releases published by the company in question. Secondary sources come from peer-reviewed scholarly journals, such as the Journal of Management. You may use like JSTOR, Google Scholar, and Social Science Research Network to find articles from these journals. Secondary sources may also come from reputable websites with .gov, .edu, or .org in the domain. (Wikipedia is not a reputable source, though the sources listed in Wikipedia articles may be acceptable.)
