        The Supreme Court | Minersville School District v. Gobitis

        By 1940 the Supreme Court had yet to rule in favor of protecting individual rights. This practice continued in the flag salute case of Minersville School Board v. Gobitis. Although the Gobitas family, who were Jehovah’s Witnesses, sued and won the right for their children not to salute the flag in school, the Supreme Court reversed the lower court ruling. This video segment, from the series The Supreme Court, explores the reasons for and the aftermath of the Court’s momentous decision in this case.
