Supreme Court Rulings Of The Past


They told us who we are.. And who they are.. And they’ve been telling us all along.

Case No. 3,776, 2 Gall. 398

Padelford, Fay & Co vs. The Mayor and Alderman of the City of Savannah

The courts decided in a little talked about case that the constitution is private compact and individual citizens had no rights to it. That comment is found on page 6 and 45.

Barron v. Mayor & City Council of Baltimore
32 U.S. 243 (1833)

Primary Holding
The Bill of Rights applies only to the federal government rather than state or local governments, since there is no textual evidence to support a different view.

Penhallow v. Doane’s Administrators
3 U.S. 54 (1795)

1 U.S. 41 (1779)
