This Day In The Law: Earl Warren

Former United States Supreme Court Justice Earl Warren was born on this day in 1891. Warren led the Court through an important period of social change during the 1950's and 1960's.

The President who nominated Warren to the Court, Dwight D. Eisenhower, later famously regretted his choice.

Warren is perhaps best known for his opinion in the case of Brown v. Board of Education.
