This paper examines the use of evidence in the Brown v. Board of Education decision. The paper analyzes the social science data proferred by the plaintiffs in the case, and considers whether the evidence was sufficient to justify the court's decision. The paper then posits the theory of whether the Supreme Court adopted bad facts (in a U.S. Constitutional sense) to reach it's determination.
