May I recommend a short, amusing and educational publication? It is a great poolside read with actual court opinions. The title is Judges Say the Darndest Things. Check its availability in your Law Library by clicking the title.
The sections Fred Shackelford compiled for the book might just clarify concepts for you.
See one of the selected opinions published in rhyme on Westlaw: Fisher v. Lowe, 333 N.W.2d 67 (Mich. Ct. App. 1983) (You will have to log into your Westlaw account). See also Irvin v. Smith, 654 N.E.2d 189 (Ohio 1993) (You will have to log into your Lexis account).

The case is U.S. V. Windsor. Do you know the facts? Read the parties' briefs on WestlawNext.
Brief for Plaintiff-Appellee
Brief for Defendant-Appellant
Also, see many other Amicus Curiae briefs and the Petition for Writ of Certiorari.
Once logged in to WestlawNext, select "Briefs" from the "All Content" tab on the homepage.
Type the search string "US v. Windsor & DOMA."
How do you think the case will be decided? What was the legislative intent?
Will they actually reach a decision on the merits - under Equal Protections, 10th Amendment state police power, dismissed for lack of standing?
