As part of the college’s annual preview of the U.S. Supreme Court term, journalists and professors participated in a mock court arguing their version of U.S. Term Limits v. Thornton. This Arkansas case will be consolidated with Bryant v. Hill, also an Arkansas term limits case, when it is argued next month, and only federal term limits will be challenged. The cases test the constitutionality of laws that limit the number of terms a politician can hold office. The Arkansas term limits legislation simply prevents a candidate’s name from being printed on the ballot if he or she has held office for a certain number of term. U.S. Term Limits is an interest group in favor of restrictions on the number of years politicians can hold office. close
