South Dakota v. Dole
This case involved Secretary of Transportation Elizabeth Dole, whose husband (Viagra spokesman) Bob Dole, was a long-time Senator from Kansas, and Republican nominee for President in 1996.
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.”
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.
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.
