The conduct of the defendant’s in the 1971 Washington Court of appeals case, State v. Williams, while neither advisable nor necessarily admirable, was justified given their valid concerns about losing possibly losing custody of their son if they sought medical help due to their Native American heritage. Walter Williams and Bernice Williams made the fateful decision to not take their 17-month old son, who was thought to only have minor tooth-ache, to the hospital due to concerns that such hospital visit would result in them losing custody of their son.

The role that Chief Justice John Marshall played in defining the power of the federal and state governments during the early 19th century is important to mention because he shaped the nation.
The United States of America has been a long-standing symbol of liberty; the pledge of allegiance even states “with liberty, and justice for all.” However, digging not-so-deep into America’s government and justice system reveals anything but liberty or justice. Luckily, there are many people out there willing to push to reform the system and help those who have been treated unfairly. Bryan Stevenson is one of those people, and his anecdote about Walter McMillian intends to show the deep rooted problems in the justice system, as well as the fairly easy solutions to make strides towards repairing it and the people who have been wronged by it. He does this by using a somber tone about the life of McMillian, as well as using a hopeful one when
The first major court case to influence our treatment of juveniles today was the Kent v. United States. The case overall, made an impact on the treatment of juveniles today because now juveniles have a right to an attorney, the parents must be notified and either parents or a lawyer must be present during an interrogation, and juveniles must be reminded of his or her right to silence.
