Supreme Court Landmark Case Korematsu v. United States Peter Irons and Karen Korematsu talked about the 1944 U.S. Supreme Court case Korematsu V. United States, in which the court ruled 6-3 that Japanese internment camps were necessary for the protection of all citizens during World War II. The guests also responded to viewer questions and comments. Karen Korematsu was the daughter of the plaintiff. Professor Irons was an attorney who discovered evidence to re-open the 40-year-old case on the basis of government misconduct. On November 10, 1983, Fred Korematsu’s conviction was overturned in a federal court.

Video clips were shown from: Japanese Relocation, a 1942 U.S. Office of War Information film; an interview with Fred Korematsu; a tour of Topaz Internment Camp near Delta, Utah; a home movie by internee Dave Tatsuno; a tour of the Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library; Fred Korematsu being given the Medal of Freedom by President Clinton; and a September 27, 2010, interview with Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer. close
