Interview with Constance Baker Motley
QUESTION 24
INTERVIEWER:

ONE OF THE POINTS YOU BROUGHT UPI SPEAKING OF THE DELAYS BEFORE WAS JUDGE CAMERONS ISSUANCE OF ORDERS SUSTAINING [STAYS?]. I WONDER IF YOU COULD TALK ABOUT HOW PECULIAR THIS WAS?

Judge Constance Baker Motley:

Yeah, well, after the court of appeals for the fifth circuit finally ordered James Meredith's admission, one of the more bizarre aspects of the whole situation legally speaking, was the effort by Judge Cameron of that court to further delay his admission. Judge Cameron was not one of the three Judges who composed the panel that decided the case.
