United States Supreme Court

395 U.S. 298

Doris DANIEL and Rosalyn Kyles, Petitioners,  v.  Euell PAUL, Jr., etc.

 Argued: March 24, 25, 1969. --- Decided: June 2, 1969

Mr. Justice DOUGLAS, concurring.

While I join the opinion of the Court, I also rest on the Fourteenth Amendment. My views were set forth in Bell v. Maryland, 378 U.S. 226, 242, 84 S.Ct. 1814, 1823, 12 L.Ed.2d 822 where I said:

'Segregation of Negroes in the restaurants and lunch counters of parts of America is a relic of slavery. It is a badge of second-class citizenship.

It is a denial of a privilege and immunity of national citizenship and of the equal protection guaranteed by the Fourteenth Amendment against abridgment by the States.' Id., 260, 84 S.Ct. 1832.

And see my concurring opinion in Heart of Atlanta Motel, Inc. v. United States, 379 U.S. 241, 279 et seq., 85 S.Ct. 348, 369 et seq., 13 L.Ed.2d 258.

Mr. Justice BLACK, dissenting.


This work is in the public domain in the United States because it is a work of the United States federal government (see 17 U.S.C. 105).
