On July 9, 2012, John Q. Barrett, Professor of Law at St. John's University and Elizabeth S. Lenna Fellow at the Robert H. Jackson Center, delivered a lecture, "Affected By Nuremberg?: Some Notable Cases in Justice Robert H. Jackson's Supreme Court Judging, 1946-1954," in a Special Studies course at Chautauqua Institution. In this lecture segment, Professor Barrett describes: Jackson's dissenting opinion in Schaughnessy v. United States ex rel. Mezei (1953); his concurring opinion in Kahriger v. United States (1953) (regarding Congress's Taxing Power); and his thinking, assisted by private correspondence with Stanford University professor and Jackson's former Nuremberg colleague and friend Charles Fairman, regarding the unconstitutionality of racial segregation, including in the Supreme Court's decisions in Sweatt v. Painter (1950), McLaurin v. Oklahoma State Regents (1950), Henderson v. United States (1950), and Brown v. Board of Education (1954). For further information, see
