Supreme Court Landmark Cases/ Habeas Corpus1Joseph Cowan AC1903336 J05V Corrections Lesson 4, Assignment 4 August 12, 2019 Supreme Court Landmark Cases/ Habeas CorpusThe Judicial Learning Center is dedicated to the teachings of the judicial process of the federal courts, and defines a “landmark case” as a court case that is investigated because it has historical and legal importance (2015). The Judicial Learning Center further states that the most significant cases are the ones that have had a long lasting impact on the application of a particular law. The six cases in particular that are being analyzed are: Mapp v. Ohio, Robinson v. California, Gideon v. Wainwright, Miranda v. Arizona, Johnson v. Avery, and Furman v. Georgia.Harry E. Allen stated in his book “corrections in America”, that the six landmark cases of the United States Supreme Court that took place in the 1960s and 1970s are Mapp v. Ohio, Robinson v. California, Gideon v. Wainwright, Miranda v. Arizona, Johnson v. Avery, and Furman v. Georgia. (p. 84). Mapp V. Ohio occurred in 1960, when Cleveland law enforcement officers believed that Dollree Mapp was harboring a suspect in a bombing investigation. The officers entered without a search warrant or probable cause to do so, during the search they located photographs and Mapp was arrested for possessing said photographs. During The trial Mapp stated that her Fourth Amendment rights to protection from unreasonable search and seizure had been violated by the officers. The case ultimately resulted with the Supreme court finding the search unjustified, making the evidence in the investigation inadmissible in court.
Six Landmark Cases of the Supreme Court2The next case in focus is Robinson V. California, In this case Lawrence Robinson was contacted by Los Angeles Law enforcement officers for apparent “track marks” on his arms.
