Abstract

This note examines the United States Supreme Court decision finding a private litigant's use of peremptory challenges to exclude jurors on account of race in a civil case constituted "state action" and violated the excluded jurors' equal protection rights. The author examines the Court's decision and concludes that the finding of "state action" was not based on reasoned jurisprudence.
