Contempt of Court - In 1906, Ed Johnson, an innocent black man, was found guilty of the brutal rape of a white woman in Chattanooga and was sentenced to die. Two black lawyers appealed to the Supreme Court for a stay of execution, and the stay was granted. Frenzied locals responded by lynching Johnson, and what ensued was a breathtaking whirlwind of groundbreaking legal action.
