Earl Warren: Warren Commission Report(1964)
Earl Warren led the U.S. Supreme Court during the turbulent years of the 1950s and 1960s. Driven by his own moral compass rather than politics, Warren shocked those on the left and right as he made the transition from crime-fighting district attorney to liberal chief justice. He became known as a protector of the rights of minorities and the oppressed, a stance reflected in many of his rulings. Warren’s ability to communicate legal concepts in concise language free from emotion and accessible to the public is demonstrated in the Warren Commission Report on the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.
