Hypothetical Supreme Court Case Study

The purpose of this research is to examine a hypothetical Supreme Court case study, Mayor of New York v. YIPES. The plan of the research will be to set forth the facts of the case in light of constitutional law and politics, and to refer to relevant precedents in deciding the question whether the Yale Interplanetary Peace Emergency Security Act (YIPES) is constitutional.

We may safely dispose of one ancillary question immediately, which is that in no case may an elected Congress and the president interpret the Constitution differently than the Supreme Court, the Court should comply with their view.
