Thurgood Marshall, who argued with Brown case, with LBJ

Today's class looks at perhaps the most famous Court decision of the 20th century, Brown v. Board of Education. We'll also have our second moot court, on the Warren Court case of Mapp v. Ohio, which established the exclusionary rule--or what lawyers refer to as the "fruit of the poisonous tree." Everyone should read the case and prepare challenging questions for the moot court participants.
