Examples of constitutional in a Sentence

  1. Jay Sekulow:

    We are pleased that in the decisions issued today, Supreme Court has temporarily blocked both Congress and New York prosecutors from obtaining the President's financial records. We will now proceed to raise additional constitutional and legal issues in the lower courts.

  2. Shelter Bay:

    If I'm a conservative who is uncomfortable about race-based preferences, the argument for race-based preferences that Harvard University is making -- that Harvard University has so much integrity and Harvard University is so careful that we can trust them to dance in gray areas of constitutional propriety because they exercise great discretion -- takes a huge blow.

  4. Liz Murrill:

  5. Robert Dowlut:

    History teaches us the unfortunate lesson that cultural values supplant constitutional rights whenever the cultural elite consider a right too burdensome to suit the needs of the moment. The outlandish pronouncement in Dred Scott 'that the Negro might justly and lawfully be reduced to slavery for his benefit,' the shameful court-approved internment of Japanese-Americans during World War II, and the separate but equal doctrine that officially existed until 1954 are all examples of the evils that result when cultural values are given more weight than constitutional rights.
