ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the conflict between the Georgia Supreme Court and the high federal court over a murder conviction. The violence of the Georgia court's reaction to the Supreme Court's assertion of jurisdiction in the case and its insulting and patronizing references to the high tribunal are explainable in terms of a deep-seated antagonism toward the Supreme Court arising out of the segregation ruling. And the very violence of the state court's rebuke to the supremacy of the Supreme Court may well create an important and celebrated constitutional crisis bearing a direct relationship to the Court's ultimate power to enforce its anti-segregation decrees.
