To A High Court, The Tumult and Choices that Led to United States of America v. SCRAP
In fall, 1971, five law students, Students Challenging Regulatory Agency Procedures (SCRAP) confronted the nation’s Railroads’ power and government’s failure. It was a time of tumult. They sued, and in 1973 the United States Supreme Court ruled in favor of SCRAP. A “lesson for holding government accountable could not be more current.” Rosa DeLauro, Member of Congress.
