FOREWORD

New Volume 12A of the UNITED STATES SUPREME COURT DIGEST, LAWYERS' EDITION, has been made necessary by the substantial accumulation of new case law within the scope of the topics covered.

In order to reflect modern developments in Supreme Court law since the time when this Digest was created, many materials have been reorganized for this new volume, and numerous new sections have been added to existing Digest topics. For example, 10 new sections have been added to States, Territories, and Possessions, so as to focus more specifically on such matters as states' immunity from suit and federal pre-emption of state laws pertaining to labor, employment discrimination, pensions, taxes, and civil procedure. And 34 new sections have been added to Statutes, so as to focus more specifically on such matters as standing to challenge the validity of a statute and consideration of such factors as the following: legislative intent, purpose, or policy; other statutes, or different parts of the same statute; legislative history; and administrative construction.

In the production of this Digest, which is designed especially to accommodate Supreme Court materials, each Supreme Court decision has been analyzed, and paragraphs have been prepared for all points, both specific holdings and general principles, for which the decision might be used as authority. The paragraphs, allocated under logical analyses in topics which are arranged alphabetically, constitute the principal part of the body of the Digest. Notations as to specific Supreme Court Justices' dissents from particular holdings are included at the end of appropriate paragraphs, and notations as to specific Supreme Court cases overruling, disapproving, or distinguishing particular holdings are included, in italics, following appropriate paragraphs.

At the beginning of each topic in this Digest are (1) a “Scope of Topic" statement explaining the scope of the topic, and (2) a “Treated elsewhere” statement specifying which other Digest topics cover closely related subjects. Also, in numerous sections are "Cross References" referring to related subjects covered in other sections of the same Digest topic or in other Digest topics.

In addition, the sections of this Digest contain useful research references to (1) annotations in the United States Supreme Court Reports, Lawyers' Edition (L Ed and L Ed 2d), American Law Reports (ALR2d, ALR3d, ALR4th, and ALR5th), and American Law Reports Federal (ALR Fed); (2) American Jurisprudence, Second Edition (Am Jur 2d); and (3) the ALR Digests.
