Norris v. Alabama
(1935)
A U.S. Supreme Court decision that overturned "the Scottsboro case," in which several black men were falsely charged with raping a white woman. The Court held that organized exclusion of blacks from jury panels (the pool of potential jurors) was a violation of a defendants' constitutional right to due process.
