APUSH Study Guide v1.4 by Meridian Notes. Do not distribute or reproduce without replicating this copyright. Court Cases during the Era People/Event Date Description Chief Justice Earl Warren 1953- 1969 The 14 th Chief Justice of the Supreme Court appointed by Nixion. His term of office was marked by numerous rulings affecting, among other things, the legal status of racial segregation, civil rights, separation of church and state and police arrest procedure in the United States. Griswold v. Connecticut 1965 The court ruled the constitution’s protection of privacy when a law in Connecticut that forbade the use of contraceptives was invalidated on the ground that it violated “right to martial privacy”. Escobedo Case ( Escobedo v. Illinois ) 1964 The court ruled the rights of the accused. It affirmed the "right to remain silent" and to have an attorney present during police questioning. Gideon v. Wainwright 1963 The court ruled that state courts are required by the Sixth and Fourteenth Amendments to the Constitution to provide lawyers for defendants in criminal cases unable to afford their own attorneys. New York Times v. Sullivan 1964 The court ruled the right to freedom of the press. The ruling stated that the actual malice (condition required to establish libel against a public figure) standard before press reports could be considered to be defamation and libel (false statement that affect one’s reputation); and hence allowed free reporting of the civil rights campaigns in the southern United States. Miranda Case ( Miranda v. Arizona ) 1966 Exact same case issue as the Escobedo Case, except in Arizona instead of Illinois. Engle v. Vitale 1962 The court ruled the 1 st Amendment’s separation of church and state. It is unconstitutional for state officials to compose an official school prayer and require its recitation in public schools, even if students can excuse themselves from participating. Reynolds v. Sims 1964 The court ruled that both upper and lower state legislators are determined by population of that state and not by the amount of land. Roe v. Wade 1973 The court ruled that establishing laws against abortion violate a constitutional right to privacy. This overturned all state laws outlawing or restricting abortion.
