Event description
Join us for an engaging presentation on the1941 U.S. Supreme Court case Edwards v. California by lawyer & legal historian John Caragozian!

About this Event

At the height of the Great Depression, California passed an "Anti-Okie" law, making it a misdemeanor to knowingly assist a pauper in entering the state. Edwards was convicted under this law after he had driven to Texas and then returned to California with his indigent brother-in-law.

Join us for an engaging presentation by lawyer and legal historian John S. Caragozian, centering on the constitutionality of California’s anti-Okie law in the 1941 United States Supreme Court case, Edwards v. California. Welcome and introduction by Richard Rahm.
