RL32995 -- Selected Opinions of Justice O'Connor

July 15, 2005



The retirement of Justice O'Connor from the Supreme Court and her replacement by a nominee of President Bush provoke numerous questions about the impact of the change in Court membership in a wide variety of issues, both constitutional and statutory. The purpose of this report is to identify significant opinions of Justice O'Connor, opinions of the Court, concurrences, and dissents, which could assist interested parties to assess possible changes in Court jurisprudence that may be anticipated over the next several years. This report does not attempt to be comprehensive but rather suggestive and selective.
