I’m stuck on a Political Science question and need an explanation.
1. There is a debate about the use of foreign precedent at the United States Supreme Court. What are the arguments for and against? Also, how did this debate play out in the Supreme Court cases on sodomy and in the capital case in Atkins v. Virginia?
2. In the book, Eligible for Execution, how does the Supreme Court ultimately decide about the state of Virginia’s attempt to execute Adkins? What was their reasoning. Please be thorough about the reasoning used by the justices.
