The current incarnation of this story dates to 1974, when Bradford Snell, a government attorney, testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee that General Motors and others had conspired to buy up and dismantle streetcar systems throughout the United States. He even claimed that they were convicted of "criminal conspiracy to monopolize ground transportation" in case No. 186 F2d 562, 1949. As we shall see, there was in fact such a court case, and GM, et al were convicted on one of the two counts in the case, but the bit about monopolizing transportation is a myth. This story got another big boost in 1988, when it formed part of the story in the movie "Who Framed Roger Rabbit?"

It has been noted on court records that this high end retail store had paid out $525,000 in racial profiling claims (Bekiempis). Is this coincidental? The answer is no, we must put a stop to racial profiling. Everyone’s constitutional rights should be protected by receiving fair and equal treatment regardless of their genetic make- up and ethnicity. Although Mr. Christian was paid a large monetary settlement, the issue of racial profiling and what he endured cannot be settled simply by paying him to resolve the trouble and unfair treatment he was subjected to.
It may seem a long way off, but soon, college-age Americans will come head-to-head with this program. They will have to decide their course of action; work hard and let others reap the reward, or shamefully feed off of the work of others. In all seriousness, Social Security has a superb backbone and was created for a righteous cause. Perhaps remembering what the program was originally made for will cause Americans to realize just how far they have strayed from the starting

A case that supports this claim is Keller v. Electronic Arts, Inc. In this case Sam Keller filed a lawsuit against Electronic Arts claiming that the company’s use of his likeness in their college football video game violated his right to publicity. Electronic Arts filed a motion to strike the case, and the court denied this motion. Keller claimed that the use of his jersey and number, along with many of his physical characteristics used in the game was misappropriation because he was never compensated for that use. This case was then absolved into the O’Bannon v. National Collegiate Athletic Association case, where Electronic Arts along with Collegiate Licensing Company settled for $40 million which was the form of compensation.

With the Congressmen winning their case the executive branch appealed it to the U.S. Supreme Court, which heard the case immediately “because the act directed the Court to hear as soon as possible any suit challenging its constitutionality”. The court dismissed that case, Raines v. Byrd on May 27, 1997 because the court did not feel that the congressmen were “the right litigants”. After the Court made their decision, President Clinton invoked the act and cancelled more than 80 items that included money for New York City hospitals and a tax break for potato farmers in Idaho. This angered the parties involved and they filed to sue under one consolidated case against the act and the Court held that the law was an unconstitutional delegation of
