Retained by the People Daniel Farber talked about his book Retained by the People: The “Silent” Ninth Amendment and the Constitutional Rights Americans Don’t Know They Have, published by Perseus Books Group. He focused on the rarely cited Ninth Amendment which states “The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.” Mr. Farber contended that Ninth Amendment affords the populace a far greater number of individual rights than originally listed in the Constitution. He argued for the use of the Ninth Amendment in settling current individual rights arguments. The Supreme Court has never based a decision on the Ninth Amendment. close
