Only use scholarly or mainstream media sources. No encyclopedias or “pro-con” sites or personal blogs, for example. If you are wondering if a source is acceptable, ask me. And do not forget that you must cite any sources you use. Another excellent source (my most commonly used one for the Supreme Court) is SCOTUSBlog.com. It wasn’t around in 1962, I’m sure, and may not have been here in 1989, either.
