Supreme Court 9 Brown V Board of Education 1954

This landmark case is one of the pillars of the modern Civil Rights movement. In order to overturn Plessey 1896 the NAACP needed to prove that separate could never be equal. It took Linda Brown, some dolls, and Thurgood Marshall to demonstrate the inferiority that Black America felt regardless of how "equal" the separate facility was.

Supreme Court 11 Miranda V. Arizona

This is the landmark case that decides the rights of the accused. Miranda confessed - doesn't that make him guilty? One would think - but what if the proper procedure wasn't followed? What if he didn't know he had the right to remain silent? That is the focus of this very important case. A 5-4 decision for Miranda adds to the controversy.

Supreme Court 7 Schenck v. The U.S.

The Russian Revolution and World War I launched the U.S. into a Red Scare. Fearing foreign influence the Espionage and Sedition Acts were passed. In essence they forbid interference with the war effort through making false statements or promoting disloyalty. Charles Schenck was the General Secretary of the U.S. Socialist party. In 1917, just when the U.S. entered World War I, he helped print and distribute over 15,000 leaflets urging men to resist the draft. He was arrested and charged with violating the Espionage Act. Sentenced to ten years in prison he appealed to the Supreme Court who upheld the conviction.

Supreme Court 8 Korematsu V. The United States

Did the U.S. government have the right to round up and detain Japanese American citizens during World War II? Did they present a danger and did the U.S. government act reasonably. Fred Korematsu didn't think so. After Franklin Roosevelt issued Executive Order 9066 Korematsu had plastic surgery and tried to conceal his identity. Korematsu was arrested and convicted of violating the local Civilian Exclusion order. He appealed to the Supreme court. The Supreme court upheld the conviction ruling that the government can take extraordinary measures in times of war. It was later looked on as a national shame.

Supreme Court 6 - Plessey V. Ferguson 1896

In the shadow of Reconstruction lived Homer Plessey. During the Jim Crowe era southern states found ways to impose highly restrictive regulations on Black society. One principal method was to restrict Blacks from mixing with Whites. Separate facilities dominated the South and Homer Plessey would test whether Louisiana's segregation regulations were Constitutional. The court ultimately ruled that Separate but Equal facilities were legal. This decision became the precedent to allow segregation throughout the South and was upheld until 1954.

Supreme Court 3 - Gibbons V Ogden 1824

This case deals with the supremacy issue once again. It is a test to reaffirm the precedent set in 1819 with McCulloch. The issue is whether a license to conduct interstate commerce issued by the Federal Government is superior to that of a State government. Of course, the Federal license will be deemed superior to the State license affirming the 1819 decision.
