Letter: The U.S. Supreme Court’s greatest hits — from 1857 to 2024

Dred Scott v. Sanford (1857): African Americans can’t be actual Americans.

Plessy v. Ferguson (1896): “Separate but equal” is just fine.

Korematsu vs. United States (1944): Innocent Americans of Japanese ancestry can be rounded up and sent to desert internment camps.

Citizens United vs FEC (2010): Corporations are people, my friend.

And now:

Trump vs. United States (2024): Contrary to every founding principle of democracy and our constitutional republic, the president is above the law.
