Abstract

The Bill of Rights, The Framers, and the Ninth Amendment is an examination of current arguments for and against expanded recognition of the Ninth Amendment and unenumerated rights by the judiciary. A brief history of the Ninth Amendment is included. Also explored are the debates between the Federalists and Anti-Federalists on the need for a bill of rights, and how the Ninth Amendment could resolve this conflict.
