The 2009 Supplement includes the documents, materials, and decisions of hearings that were held on several controversial Supreme Court decisions during the 109th and 110th Congresses. These include Kelo v. City of New London, in which the Court held in a 5-to-4 decision that private development plans could offer enough benefits to the community through economic growth as to qualify such plans as permissible “public use” under the Takings Clause of the Fifth Amendment. This supplement also includes documents related to enacted legislation for U.S. Courts of Appeals and Federal District Courts. These enactments include the Class Action Fairness Act of 2005, Court Security Improvement Act of 2007, Military Commissions Act of 2006, and the Federal Judiciary Emergency Special Sessions Act of 2005.
