United States Supreme Court
On purpose Plessy sat in the white section and identified himself of being black so he could get attention. For what he done he was arrested and the case went all the way to the Union States Supreme Court.
He broke the law but his lawyer believed that he was in the right and the law was wrong.
Despite this the court disagreed and said that it was equal and everything was fair.
This court case became known as "seperate but equal" desicion and legalized segregation in America.
