Abstract: From the video archives of the Cornell Law School Heritage Project. The interviewer is Alfred C. Aman (Tuttle clerk 70-72); the videographer, Thomas R. Bruce. This video covers Elbert Tuttle's reflections on the Birmingham School case in which he as an individual Circuit Court judge issued an injunction, his impressions of Constance Baker Motley as a lawyer appearing before the Fifth Circuit, and his recollection of encounters with key Justice Department figures. (Duration 20:30) The initial phase of this project was sponsored by a generous grant from the law firm of Sutherland Asbill and Brennan LLP.
