Briefs of Leading Cases in Corrections is a 268 page book by Rolando Del Carmen, Susan Ritter and Betsy Witt, which gives a summary and synopsis of 113 United States supreme court cases dealing with prisons, jails, probation, parole, the death penalty, sentencing and juvenile justice. The book is well organized with case capsules allowing the reader to quickly determine which cases may be relevant. The book's primary usefulness is to serve as a quick, easy to use reference on supreme court cases governing the above topics. Because only a synopsis of the cases is provided, its usefulness to litigants may be limited. Order from Anderson Publishing, address above.
