Your paper should discuss commerce clause cases decided since Gibbons v. Ogden that construct a logic for deciding the Bates case. DO NOT SUMMARIZE EACH CASE. Instead explain why the precedents you chose, and the principles involved in those cases, are appropriate and relevant for deciding Bates.
There’s no need to provide a detailed summary of the background of the Bates case.
Do not write this paper as if you were actually deciding Bates and writing a proposed opinion for the Supreme Court.
One way to think about this assignment is to imagine you are a clerk for a Supreme Court justice (clerks are recent graduates, usually of elite law schools, who assist the justices for a year or two) and you have been asked to prepare a document that analyzes which prior commerce clause cases are most relevant for understanding how Bates should be decided and, more generally, how the issues raised in Bates relate to the evolution of commerce clause precedents. Think of this paper as your response to the justices’ request.
