Of civil wrongs and rights the Fred Korematsu story by Eric Paul Fournier( Visual )

2 editions published between 2000 and 2007 in English and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fred Korematsu was probably never more American than when he resisted, and then challenged in court, the forced internment of Japanese Americans during World War II. Korematsu lost his landmark Supreme Court case in 1944 but never his indignation and resolve. This is the untold history of the 40-year legal fight to vindicate Korematsu, one that finally turned a civil injustice into a civil rights victory

Fighting for justice the coram nobis cases( Visual )

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1942, three courageous men defied military orders that culminated in the incarceration of 120,000 people of Japanese ancestry during World War II. In three separate cases, Minoru Yasui, Gordon Hirabayashi, and Fred Korematsu were convicted of violating curfew and internment orders and their convictions were upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court. Nearly forty years later this film traces the history of the young third-generation Japanese American legal teams that, in the 1980's, fought to right this injustice by invoking a rarely used legal procedure--a petition for a writ of error coram nobis, which asks that a trial court correct a fundamental error and injustice committed at the time of the trial. Concludes with a panel discussion featuring Korematsu, Hirabayashi and the lead attorneys for their cases
