During the past year, the Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit decided a number of significant appeals involving constitutional issues. As is generally the case, most of the issues presented to the Second Circuit were also under judicial scrutiny in other federal appellate courts. Four first amendment cases decided by the court—three dealing primarily with freedom of religion and a fourth with freedom of the press—are particularly noteworthy and merit review.
