Misunderstood Decision

May 1956
New Republic;5/7/56, Vol. 134 Issue 19, p4
The article focuses on the confusion created by the Supreme Court in the U.S. in connection with the Court's disposition of the South Carolina bus-segregation case. The Court's ruling was widely heralded as a decision that state laws requiring segregation by race on intrastate public transportation systems were unconstitutional whereas the Court merely dismissed the South Carolina case as improperly before it at this particular time. The Court of Appeals had sent the case back to the District Court for further proceedings.
