Chisolm v. Georgia
The Court delivered its decision in Chisolm seritatim, meaning that each of the five Justices wrote a separate opinion.
Here are news clippings from the Columbian Centinel, a newspaper in Boston, from March 13, 1973.
Seminole Tribe of Florida v. Florida
City of Boerne v. Flores
Here are photographs of St. Peter the Apostle Church in Boerne, Texas, the subject of City of Boerne v. Flores. I suppose this church makes an exception to the “Though Shalt Not Kill” Commandment for the Religious Freedoms Restoration Act, which met its constitutional demise within the hallowed walls of this house of worship.

United States v. Morrison
This is Christy Brzonkala, the plaintiff in what would become United States v. Morrison. I could not find a photograph of Antonio J. Morrison and James Crawford.
