The Supreme Court ended its latest term last week, issuing 80 rulings and setting new legal precedents in the process. While the Court was split on many high profile issues, like civil rights cases and the Brady gun law, overall there was a surprising degree of unanimity among the nine Supreme Court Justices. Nearly half the cases, 38, were decided by 9-0 votes, including the Communications Decency Act, the Paula Jones-President Clinton lawsuit and the doctor-assisted suicide issue.
