3. Contracts and state laws (2 different ones)

4. Elastic Clause and federal-state relations. Also what does the "elastic clause" mean in your own words.

5. Federal control of inter-state commerce

6. state laws in relationship with the indians

7. Citzenship and slaves..hint: TANEY

8. What is the Ex Parte Milligan?

1. "seperate but equal" - plessy v. ferguson 1896

2. Judicial Review (easy) marbury v. madison

3. Contracts and state laws (2 different ones) guessing, gibbons v. ogden; mcCulloch v. maryland

no idea

6. state laws in relationship with the indians
georgia v. worcester ?
