The second one that im going to talk about is the court case

intersting case its about segrigation. The state called for school

districs to reverse its policy of racial segrigation of other students.

They had to stop seperation in the schools so there will be no more

segrigation going on. His court case added to the fight to end or

his life. the decision was the Unruh Act does'nt violate the First

Amendment. The Effect was that it opened the thought of what is

covered in the First Amenment. All these cases have a cause in the

civil rights area and the Disobedience area to. These cases

happened a while...
