    This is true, because of the following landmark decisions:

    Brown v. Board of Education 347 U.S. 483 (1954), which banned the segregation of public schools;

    the "one man, one vote" cases of 1962–1964, which dramatically altered the relative power of rural regions in many states;

    Gideon v. Wainwright, 372 U.S. 335 (1963), which held that the Sixth Amendment required that all indigent criminal defendants receive publicly-funded counsel. The law to that point requiring the assignment of free counsel only to indigent defendants in capital cases;

    Miranda v. Arizona, 384 U.S. 436 (1966), which required that certain rights of a person interrogated while in police custody be clearly explained, including the right to an attorney (often called the "Miranda warning").

    Loving v. Virginia, {388 U.S. 1} (1967), which overturned the Racial Integrity Act of 1924, which had banned inter-racial marriage in the Commonwealth of Virginia.

    He was a republican and a former 3 times governor of california. He was appointed to the Supreme Court by D. Eisenhower.

    Here are some cases, but you have to do the homework.

    Brown v. Board

    Miranda v. AZ

    Griswold v. Connecticutt

    Baker v. Carr

    Heart of Atlanta v. US

    Gideon v. Wainwright

    My opinion is that Griswold had the biggest over reaching impact and was legislating from the bench in an overt power grab by the court. You study and decide.
