    Supreme Court Self Defense Cases

    Since we all seem to be "Want-A-Be" legal Pundits, myself included! Here is an interesting read on the Supreme Court ruling on self defense:

    THE SELF-DEFENSE CASES: HOW THE UNITED STATES SUPREME COURT CONFRONTED A HANGING JUDGE IN THE NINETEENTH CENTURY AND TAUGHT SOME LESSONS FOR JURISPRUDENCE IN THE TWENTY-FIRST

    One interesting aspect of these cases is the "Duty to Retreat" rulings! Enjoy!

    Long link, short attention span. Seems like a lot of this could still be used for dismissals.
