reed v reed

Basically this was a case where an equal protection in the United States which the supreme court ruled that the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment did not allow unfair treatment based on sex. It is considered unconstitutional to judge a person based on their gender. You must have probable cause.

Robicheaux v. George

The U.S. Supreme Court, was in the middle of deciding whether to take up the issue of gay marriage, on Monday they decided to take an early look at a challenge to Louisiana’s state ban. "The decision not to hear the Louisiana case was not unexpected as gay rights advocates had sought to skip the regular judicial process by seeking Supreme Court review before the case had been decided by an appeals court. Gay rights advocates representing the Louisiana plaintiffs said in court papers there is a “pressing need” to resolve the issue once and for all." The final ruling was that they did not strike down state gay marriage bans as a violation of the U.S. Constitution's guarantee of equal treatment under the law.

University of California v bakke

The U.S. Supreme court in1978 A Caucasian applicant to the University of California Davis Medical School, sued the University saying that they denied admission because of his race and was a violation of the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment.

O'hearin v Bryant

A university basically had a point system where minorities are given points due to preference. This Point system sparked quite a bit of controversy with the college students. The supreme court ruled that affirmative action in school admission is constitutional and if it treats race as one factor among many its purpose is to achieve a diverse class and it does not substitute for an individual review of student. It is unconstitutional if it automatically increases someone who is applying's chances over others just because of his or her race. So Jennifer Gratz and Patrick Hammacher were Caucasian kids that lived in Michigan were declined when applying to the school. The students then sued the school in court saying that its admissions process was unconstitutional. The federal court agreed, and the case was appealed up to the Supreme Court

My understanding

I think of this culture war as lots of cases where people are not treated the same, I think everyone should be treated the same and they have every right to sue or Press charges and take these cases to court. The reason these have all gone all the way to the Supreme Court is because they needed to be seen by all and should have multiple people voting on is it just or not
