1. The Commerce Clause of the Constitution has been used to greatly expand the powers of the federal government to regulate commerce between the states.

10. Procedural Due Process is a matter of a person having a right to being treated fairly as that persons goes through the legal process; e.g having a right to be heard, a right to call witness, a right to confront his accusers, etc.
11. If a federal law denies a person rights without that person having a chance to argue his position, that law is likely unConstitutional due to lack of due process.
12. If a federal law imposes a duty on some people, but not others, the law is de facto unConsititutional For instance, the law prohibits some people from owning or possessing firearms (a Second Amendment right), that law is, in fact, unConstitutional.
13. In order for a law which impacts a non-fundamental right to meet Constitutional muster, the federal government must show that the law is necessary to promote a compelling state interest.
14. If a law is fundamental, it will be subject to the "strict scrutiny" test to determine if it meets "Constitutional muster".
15. It is far easier for a law to overcome a challenge to its Constitutionality if the challenge is on the basis of a rational basis (legitimate government interest), as opposed to strict scrutiny (compelling state interest.)

27. If there were no Full Faith and Credit clause in the Constitution, it would be harder to get a divorce in California of a Florida marriage.
28. The Founders of America and the colonies held a belief in natural law, that is, that there are rules which are not just made up, but which are consistent with nature and God. This belief is apparent in the Declaration of Independence

30. The government of the United States is divided into three parts; the legislative which makes the laws, the judicial which interprets the laws and decides if they are consistent with the Constitution, and the executive which enforces the laws and also makes the laws and interprets them.

33.The Harvard Law Review is an example of a source of primary law which can be cited in arguing a case.

36. Fred always wanted to be a cop. He got a job as a security officer. One night he was curious at to what was in a car parked on a driveway on one of the streets he patrolled. He stopped, walked onto the driveway, pried open the trunk and found a large amount of a controlled substance which he turned into the authorities. A suppression hearing was held wherein the defendant argued that the seized drugs could not come into evidence as Fred had no warrant. The defendant will be successful.
37. The outcome in the above question would clearly be the same if Fred were an off-duty police officer at the time of the seizure.
38. Fred is a neighborhood security guard for a private patrol company. As such, his acts during his hours of employment are not effected by the rights enumerated in the Constitution
39. If Fred (cf. 38 above), while on patrol, pries open a car trunk therein finding illegal drugs belonging to Jake, at a subsequent trial, the drugs cannot come into evidence as they are prohibited by the Constitution prohibition against illegal search and seizure.
40. At a consequent suppression hearing, Jake's attorney should try to show that Fred's behavior was "State Action".
41. Elmer was a new hire at the law firm of Dewie, Chetim, and Howe. He was paid to keep an eye on the goings-on in the firm. He dressed in street clothing and other employees thought he was the new mail clerk. It was Elmer's custom to search through the desks of the other employees after they all had left work, doing so without permission of the employees. One day he found illicit drugs in Zeke's desk. This evidence cannot be used in a criminal prosecution as it was improperly found by Elmer.
42. The employees of HackedDrive Inc. extensively use email for both internal and external company related communication One day Jake sends an email to a friend saying; "I'm underpaid and so am skimming the petty cash funds to supplement my income." The company, unknown to Jake, monitors each and every email. Consequently Jake was fired and criminally prosecuted. The evidence will likely be suppressed based upon Costitutional grounds
43. The government wants to catch criminals. They have asked (demanded?) internet related companies to turn over records of emails and telephone calls and conversations The government does not have a warrant for this information The government clearly is engaging in UnConstitutional activities.
