Post by rjaguar3 » Mon Sep 10, 2018 8:01 pm

Welcome to the TOC.

If you're name is on this list, you're in the running for the championship. If not, you're welcome to play in this thread, and your responses will be scored separately in the "Consolation division".

Good luck. Here's Day 1.

AMENDMENTS IN THE SUPREME COURT
Notable Supreme Court cases related to specific Constitutional amendments.

2: 4th: Carpenter v. United States (2018) addressed the need for a warrant for location records created by these devices, whose search required a warrant in Riley v. California (2014).

4: 8th: The 5-4 decision Roper v. Simmons (2005) held that capital punishment for this group of people is unconstitutional; automatic life-without-parole for them was banned in Miller v. Alabama (2012).

6: 13th and 14th: John Marshall Harlan was the lone dissenter in the 1896 case where the Supreme Court ruled this mixed-race man's rights weren't violated by having to sit in a "separate but equal" railroad car.

8: 2nd: This was the second city to have a handgun ban invalidated by the Supreme Court; it was struck down in a 2010 decision incorporating the 2nd amendment against the states.

10: 1st: Chaplinsky v. New Hampshire (1942) first introduced this two-word term for unprotected speech "that by [its] very utterance inflict[s] injury or tend[s] to incite an immediate breach of the peace".

CLASSIC FILMS

3: Clark Gable and Claudette Colbert starred in this 1934 film that was the first to win all the "Big 5" Academy Awards.

6: In the 1920s, this actor brought film into the sound era as a star of The Jazz Singer and The Singing Fool.

9: Both a 1925 silent film starring Ramon Novarro and a 1959 film that won Best Picture were based on this 1880 novel subtitled "A Tale of the Christ".

12: This 1940 film based on a Daphne du Maurier novel was Hitchcock's first American project.

15: Ray Milland plays alcoholic writer Don Birnam on his Thursday-to-Tuesday quest for booze in this 1945 film.
