Entertainment Merchants' Association, which concerns the constitutionality of a California law banning the sale of violent video games to minors. This case takes up where Ginsberg v. New York (1968) left off. J.D.B. v. North Carolina, concerning how to apply Miranda when police interrogated a 13-year-old special ed student at school. Camreta v. Greene, which will decide whether the usual Fourth Amendment requirements, including the warrant requirement, apply when police want to interview a child about child abuse or neglect allegations Graham v. Florida, in which the Court held that the Eighth Amendment's Cruel and Unusual Punishments clause does not permit a juvenile offender to be sentenced to life in prison without parole for a non-homicide crime. The decision, which relies heavily on Roper v. Simmons, was a striking departure from the Court's long-standing "death is different" jurisprudence as well as a signal of Justice Kennedy's enduring belief in the potential for young offenders to be redeemed. Thorough update on same-sex relationships, including new material on the California same-sex marriage decision, comparison of marriage with civil unions and domestic partnerships, and interstate recognition of adoption and parentage
