Important Case Law

Engblom v. Carey, 1982

This case was decided by the U.S. Court of Appeals, Second Circuit. It initiated several things: that the members of the National Guard are considered as soldiers under the Third Amendment, that the Third Amendment is applicable to states, similarly to federal authorities, and that the Third Amendment extends to anyone who has the right to prohibit others from their property.
