The Constitution Project: An Independent Judiciary
This film chronicles two key moments that defined our understanding of the role of the judiciary: the Cherokee Nation’s struggles before the Supreme Court in the 1830s to preserve its homeland, and Cooper v. Aaron, the 1958 Supreme Court case that affirmed that states were bound to follow the Court’s order to integrate their schools. An Independent Judiciary features Supreme Court Justice Stephen G. Breyer and some of the nation’s leading constitutional scholars. Length: 34 minutes
