I don't know if this will be helpful for anyone, but I have a (hopefully) clever way to remember which case halted and reinstated the death penalty respectively:  there are no G's in the name Furman but there are three G's in Gregg.  Since the problem with the death penalty dealt with a lack of standardized rules for implementing the punishment, it is a good thing that there are five G's in the name Gregg v. Georgia because it is a standard letter for the title.

Again, call me crazy if it doesn't make a lick of sense, but if it helps, go with it! :)
