Trace the early foundations on which some members of the Court were willing to protect an individual from government intrusion into their personal life. How did Harlan transform these ideas in Poe v.

Explain Douglass discussion of penumbras and why they are so important to his justification for a right to privacy. How did the other justices defend a right to privacy? What justification did the dissenters in the case offer against a right to privacy? What has been the interpretation of privacy issues since Griswold? To what areas has the Court been willing to extend the privacy right, and what have been its justifications.
