With the Supreme Court recently concluding its 2012 term, now is a good time to look back.

- human genes cannot be patented;
- a DNA cheek swab after certain arrests is reasonable under the Fourth Amendment; and
- Section 4 of the Voting Rights Act is unconstitutional.
But it’s often the decisions that slip by quietly that impact you most. We’ll be publishing a series of posts about decisions that didn’t get a lot of press, but that are worth revisiting.
