    Brown v. Bd. Of Education  (1954) First argued in 1952, then re-argued in 1953, it was a  consolidation of four cases involving educational segregation in  primary and secondary schools in four different states— Brown  being the first alphabetically. Bolling v. Sharpe  (1954) was a companion case involving school  segregation in the District of Columbia. The case was national in scope, effecting school segregation  across the country. And thus fits Rosenberg’s criteria for  importance. The case was an important break with previous understandings of  the law in popular culture.  It is almost impossible to hear of the  case, without hearing the term “Landmark” first.

The decision did not include a remedy, which was  postponed until a later re-hearing. The remedy phase of the decision (often called  Brown II was announced on May 31, 1955. The decision commanded lower courts to “enter such  orders and decrees consistent with this opinion as are  necessary and proper to admit to public schools on a  racially nondiscriminatory basis with  all deliberate speed   the parties to these cases” ( Brown II  1955, cited in  Rosenberg)
