Wickard v. Filburn

This is Secretary of the Agriculture Claude Wickard.
This is Wickard, flanked by New Dealers, in front of various charts and projections about the price of agriculture.
Hearts of Atlanta Motel v. United States
The Hearts of Atlanta Motel, located at 255 Courtland Street NE in Atlanta, was owned by Atlanta lawyer Moreton Rolleston Jr. This was a segregate hotel. Rolleston represented himself all the way to the Supreme Court. The location is currently a Hilton.
Katzenbach v. McClung
This is Ollie’s Bar-B-Q, the site of Katzenbach v. McClung in Birmingham, Alabama.
And because I am insane, I purchased an entire case of Ollie’s Bar-B-Q sauce.
United States v. Lopez
This is Thomas Edison High School in San Antonio, Texas, the site where Alfonso Lopez, Jr., brought a gun to school in violation of the Gun-Free School Zones Act of 1990.
I obtained these (blurry) photographs from Lopez’s high school yearbook.
The caption reads “Rushing down the field, Alfonzo Lopez warms up before the game.”
Gonzales v. Raich
This is Angel Raich, the lead plaintiff in Gonzales v. Raich.
Here is a photograph of Raich using a marijuana vaporizer.
Right to Left: Robert Raich, Angel McClary Raich, (a younger) Randy Barnett, Diane Monson, and David Michael at the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco, California.
Here is Raich finding out that the Supreme Court ruled against her cause.
