Advanced Robot Inc v California, Anikan Vader-C v South Carolina, Jones v Alabama, Texas v. Robot Car Factory Union, Dracul v. Arkansas, Mississippi v. Gobot Kelly, Weissenberg v. City of Provo, California v. Gooch, Utah v. Nelson, Space Colony v US Courts, United States v United States

My biases are probably showing, and I was fairly permissive in my inclusion.

Also want to say amazing question with that last one.  Reminds me of a short story I read once that's sadly probably lost to time.

I think it will often depend entirely on the context of the playthrough. Public opinion on almost any of these topics could be vastly different depending on how the country has developed. I think the AMPU 2 solution could be to have meters for things like Religious Affiliation, Fundamentalism, Luddism that are moved depending on the length of time a policy is in place (eg. if you pass and implement disproportionately more evolution>creationism in education legislation, then over time the religious affiliation meter moves towards agnosticism/athiesm. If you pass and implement legislation that discriminates against religious groups then fundamentalism goes up over time, if you improve access to quality education for a long time then levels of luddism drop etc.) and then the significance of court cases is determined by the circumstances. Eg. Roe Jr. vs. Wade Jr. is a huge case if the population is split in terms of religious affiliation, there are higher levels of fundamentalism. If the court finds in favour of abortion rights but the country has large religious membership and moderate to high fundamentalism, or if the court finds against abortion rights in a country with low religious membership or fundamentalism. For marrying AI/Robots it could be a combination of luddism/religious membership+fundamentalism. I'm sure there's other things that could be tracked, but ultimately I would think the importance of the case should be determined by the context of the playthrough.

I Think Advanced Robotics Inc. V. California has the biggest potential to be a Roe v. Wade like case (Which I take to mean as a ruling that can create/fuel a political movement by itself, like how the Roe decision led to the birth of the Pro-Life movement.) Other than that, I think Anikan Vader-C v South Carolina, Bender v. New York, Jefferson Bot-C-1826 v. United States, and Mississippi v. Gobot Kelly all have the potential to be Roe like cases - I can picture in my mind protests outside the SCOTUS building by supporters of either side. I think Utah v. Nelson, Weissenberg v. City of Provo, Roscoe v. Montgomery Public Schools, and Texas v. Robot Car Factory Union could also go in this category, but I could also see them going into a less influential tier.

@WVProgressive @ConservativeElector2 @Mark_W @Timur @OrangeP47 @Willthescout7

And here are my final additions before early relase: 

Walton-Koch v United States Can an business entity, such as a social media platform, mega church, or mega corporation, declare itself a sovereign nation?
Skeli v Bernie Bros, Inc Can a Company Purchase the Rights and Secrets of the Cancer Cure in order to provide treatment to the highest bidders?
Robotnik-Robby v Warehouse USA Are business also required to provide lunch breaks for robot employees even if these employees do not require rest or food
Data-TNG-B v California Can a state prohibit a robot its request to be modified into a human, especially since the science behind the transition is only partially tested?
AmyZahn, Inc v New York Is it legal for states to set speed limits for drones?

Only the first I'd put in the "Landmark Tier".

Piggybacking on these 5 - definitely seem to be the highest impact,  and define what it means to be a citizen (or tree).
