A First Amendment Profile of the Supreme Court focuses on the nine justices of the United States Supreme Court and determines their frames for assessing First Amendment cases. In each of the chapters, a justice is profiled in terms of his or her claims during the nomination hearings and the positions they have taken in significant Supreme Court decisions. These chapters provide a rhetorical frame that each of these justices would find appealing regarding First Amendment case law.
