Abstract

Part of a law review symposium on the worst Supreme Court cases, this essay nominates Naim v. Naim, in which the Court declined to review a Virginia antimiscegenation law, postponing action in this area for over a dozen years. This article argues that the Court's reluctance to enter this arena was unfortunate, short-sighted, and cruel; and that we might be a different nation if the Supreme Court had been less concerned about appearances and more about doing the right thing in 1955.
