Sandford v. Sanford

Here’s a quick tutorial:

  • Governor of South Carolina – Mark Sanford
  • Author of Lynch v Clarke decision in New York – Lewis H. Sandford
  • Defendant in Dred Scott v Sandford –  John F.A. Sanford

Not only did the Supreme Court get the law wrong in the Dred Scott decision, it misspelled the name of the defendant.
