STARE DECISIS….I’m curious about something and I’m not quite sure how to go about looking it up, especially since it involves a judgment call. Here it is: When was the last time the Supreme Court voted to overturn a truly seminal decision?

Obviously the definition of “seminal” is a matter of interpretation, but I’m thinking of something similar to the way Brown overturned Plessy or West Coast Hotel overturned Lochner. That is, a major and longstanding precedent that was clearly repudiated by a later court.

Any nominees?
