In their new book The Dirty Dozen:  How Twelve Supreme Court Cases Radically Expanded Government and Eroded FreedomRobert A. Levy and William Mellor analyze how the 12 worst U.S. Supreme Court decisions of the modern era have changed the course of American history.

Levy is a Senior Fellow in Constitutional Studies at the Cato Institute in Washington, D.C.  Mellor is President and General Counsel of the Institute for Justice in Arlington, Va., which The Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation in Milwaukee substantially supports.

In The Dirty Dozen, Levy and Mellor reveal the ongoing impact these Court cases have on free speech, economic liberty, property rights, private contracts, and much more.  The book tells the story of how America moved from our Founders' Constitution, which established a strictly limited government, to today's Constitution, which has expanded government and curtailed individual rights.
 
It highlights how important it is for the next president to appoint judges willing to overturn precedents that undercut fundamental American rights.
