Roger Taney issues majority statement: Dred Scott is still a slave and since Scott is not a citizen he can't sue in court and also says that no blacks are citizens- no rights that whites must respect also says that Northwest Ordinance/Missour i Compromise is unconstitutional, unfairly took people's property away from them AND if congress doesn’t have right to prohibit slavery then new states must wait until statehood to determine slavery or not; causes problems when slaves are already inhabiting the area, can states themselves keep slaves out of their states? - "slave power conspiracy"!

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
