Natural Rights, Enumerated Rights, and the Ninth Amendment

October 15, 2008
Speaker: Michael W. McConnell, Presidential Professor of Law, Judge, 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals

Summary: The Sumner Canary Lecture
When faced with drafting a Bill of Rights, members of the First Congress were faced with an impossible problem: what to include and what to leave out. Lockean theory told them that after construction of a social compact, such as the Constitution, the people would retain all rights not relinquished to the state. But what was the legal status of those retained rights, and how would they be affected by the explicit enumeration of some but not all of them?

Michael W. McConnell joined the faculty of S.J. Quinney College of Law in 1997 after teaching at the University of Chicago Law School for 12 years, where he was William B. Graham Professor of Law. Prior to his teaching career, Professor McConnell served as assistant to the solicitor general with the U.S. Department of Justice, assistant general counsel for the U.S. Office of Management and Budget, and clerked for Chief Judge J. Skelly Wright, of the District of Columbia U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. He also served a clerkship with U.S. Supreme Court Justice William J. Brennan. Among the country’s most distinguished scholars in the fields of constitutional law and theory with a specialty in the religion clauses of the First Amendment, Professor McConnell has argued 11 times before the U.S. Supreme Court. He is widely published in the areas of church-state relations and the First Amendment. He is a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and was sworn in as a judge on the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on January 3, 2003.

Professor McConnell teaches constitutional law, family law, state and local government, religion and the First Amendment.

Rihanna Cold Case Love with Lyrics

On my roof
Dark and Im burning of love
I dont need proof
Im torn apart
And you know

What you did to me
Was a crime
Cold case love
And I let you reach me
One more time
But thats enough
Oh, oh

Your love is breaking the law
But I need a new witness
So wake me up when its over
It dont make any difference
Will it ever be solved
Or am I taking the fall
Truth was there all along
Tell me how did we miss it

We opened up a
Cold case love
And it got the best of us

And now printed pictures
And white lines
Are all thats left
At the scene of a crime
Of a cold case love
Oh, oh, oh

Shouldve investigated
But love blinded eyes
Couldnt see, no
And then I tried to cage it
But your love aint the kind
That you can keep

Release me now cause
I did my time
Of this cold case love
My hearts no longer cold
And confined
Ive had enough
Oh, oh, oh

Your love is breaking the law
But I need a new witness
So wake me up when its over
It dont make any difference
Will it ever be solved
Or am I taking the fall
Truth was there all along
Tell me how did we miss it

We opened up a
Cold case love
And it got the best of us

And now printed pictures
And white lines
Are all thats left
At the scene of a crime
Of a cold case love
Oh, oh, oh

We lost our way
Took this too far
Now Ill never find
The pieces of my heart

Weve lost enough
Looking for a truth
That was here all along

Cold case love
And it got the best of us

And now printed pictures
And white lines
Are all thats left
At the scene of a crime
Of a cold case love

We opened up
A cold case love
And it got the best of us

And now printed pictures
And white lines
Are all thats left
At the scene of a crime
Of a cold case love
Oh, oh, oh

In Missouri, a part-time missionary is convicted, 38 years later, of killing her 5-year-old stepdaughter, and the skeleton of a Michigan boy, dead for 10 years, leads police to a serial killer.
