Constitutional Liberties Legal Cases

Since its creation in 1977, Mountain States Legal Foundation has been a national leader in seeking to ensure the liberties and freedoms guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution. For example, before the U.S. Supreme Court and in various federal appellate and trial courts throughout the country, MSLF has set valuable legal precedent to achieve the goal of our Founding Fathers--a colorblind Constitution. MSLF victories before the U.S. Supreme Court in Wygant v. Jackson Board of Education, 476 U.S. 267 (1986) and Adarand Constructors, Inc. v. Peña, 115 S.Ct. 2097 (1995), have changed race-based decision making by the federal government forever! MSLF continues its fight to ensure that the Constitution is interpreted as intended by its framers.
