  • Supreme Court Decision: In November 1941, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that a law authored by William Moseley Jones and Kent H. Redwine, AB 950 (1937), was unconstitutional. The law, known variously as the "Jones-Redwine Bill" or "California's Anti-Okie Law" banned the bringing into the State any indigent person who is not a resident of the State, was found to violate the Fourteenth Amendment. (Edwards v. People of State of California)
