The other day I was discussing Chief Justice Roberts’ health care opinion with a student, and I said that it was a “one-way ticket.” In other words, the result was extremely important, but doctrinally it would have no impact.
This got me to thinking–how many constitutional one-way tickets are there. Bush v. Gore comes to mind, but I’m hard pressed to think of any other notable candidates. Suggestions?
