The U.S. Supreme Court debated high-profile cases on gun control, Guantanamo Bay detentions, employment discrimination, the death penalty and other subjects of national controversy during its 2007-2008 term.

On June 27, Brookings Fellow Benjamin Wittes moderated a Judicial Issues Forum that included a panel of distinguished legal experts to assess the key rulings and developments of the term. Panelists included Stuart Taylor, Brookings nonresident senior fellow and National Journal columnist; Miguel Estrada of Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher LLP; and Randolph Moss of WilmerHale.
