Good question. I don't know. Why do you ask?

Do you think that the one with the fewest USSC decisions implies that it is the least controversial?

No person shall be elected to the office of the President more than twice, and no person who has held the office of President, or acted as President, for more than two years of a term to which some other person was elected President shall be elected to the office of the President more than once. But this Article shall not apply to any person holding the office of President, when this Article was proposed by the Congress, and shall not prevent any person who may be holding the office of President, or acting as President, during the term within which this Article becomes operative from holding the office of President or acting as President during the remainder of such term.

2. This article shall be inoperative unless it shall have been ratified as an amendment to the Constitution by the legislatures of three-fourths of the several States within seven years from the date of its submission to the States by the Congress

@kuvasz,
He did say the bill of rights not all the amendments but if we are looking at more then the first 10 amendments I would say the last one pass after being submission to the states over 200 years ago.

No law, varying the compensation for the services of the Senators and Representatives, shall take effect, until an election of Representatives shall have intervened.

I don't think I've ever ran across that exact figure....but I'd guess the 3rd...out of the 10.

@2PacksAday,
I did a number of google searches and could not find the numbers of rulings concerning the bill of rights amendments.

You would think that someone complied the numbers but so far no luck at all.

I'd suspect either the second or the third amendment. The Supremes have never liked to visit the second amendment.

That is clearly no longer he case with one ruling last session and a case before the court coming up this term.
