Eighth Says 'Enough?'

Does the Eighth Amendment protect one against excessive fines levied by the state? As SCOTUS mulls this lingering incorporation question, two amici - Beth Colgan (UCLA) and Lawrence Rosenthal (Chapman Univ. Fowler) - offer competing views on the doctrine and the case's ramifications. Plus reporter Erin Lee previews her profile of California Supreme Court Justice Mariano-Florentino Cuellar.
