No, this class does not deal with the burning issue of whether completing all of your CLE hours in one day should be considered cruel and unusual punishment. That’s your own fault! But this class does look into recent Supreme Court case dealing with the 8th Amendment, including Hall v. Florida, 134 S.Ct. 1986 (2014), Miller v. Alabama, 132 S.Ct. 2455 (2012), GLossip v. Gross, 135 S.Ct. 2726 (2015), and Kansas v. Gleason and Kansas v. Carr. Last term, Justice Breyer opined in a dissenting opinion that maybe it’s time for the Court to jettison the practice and call it cruel and unusual. So tune in to see what the Nine are saying about this amendment.
