What court case led the break in the color barrier in the MLB?

I have a project for my law class, and I have to pick a landmark case. I love the story of Jackie Robinson. I know Plessy v Ferguson was dropped (although related). And Brown v Board of Education was after the break of the color barrier. Which case would make more sense?

Please & Thank You!

    There was no court case involving the color barrier in baseball. The case The United States v. 2nd Lieutenant Jack R. Robinson was about Robinson's court martial. (Interesting minor case, but unrelated to baseball.)
