Hugo Black - Senator

While shedding no tears for big, bad  American corporations but how was (then U.S. Senator future U.S. Supreme Court justice)  Hugo Black allowed  in 1938 to pursue his inquisitions given  corporate immunity enabled by Dartmouth v Woodward (1819 - Marshall Court) not to mention the Fifth (self incrimination) and Fourteenth Amendment (due process)  protections.  Senator Black ran these inquiries like Stalin’s show trials happening concurrently (great minds think alike).  Senator Black treated his victims as though they had no constitutional rights whatsoever: freedom from search and seizure, right to a fair trial.  In these inquisitions Hugo Black violated the “most important right of all” - Louis D. Brandeis - the right to be left alone.
