Apprendi v. New Jersey

In the summer of 2000, the high court released a number of momentous decisions, ruling on "partial birth abortions," the Boy Scouts's ban on gays, the Miranda warning, California's "Blanket" primary, and hate crime sentencing standards.In Apprendi v. New Jersey, a more divided court (5-4) ruled that only a jury may impose additional punishment for the commission of a hate crime, striking down a New Jersey law that allowed judges to issue stiffer sentences in hate crime cases. As always, the full text of the syllabi and both opinions in all of these cases can be read in HTML or .pdf format at the Legal Information Institute at Cornell Law School Supreme Court Collection site.
