  • Supreme Court Judge Robert B. Taney told Scott he had no right to go to the court in the first place, since he was not a citizen. Therefore, Scott and his family could not be free. 
  • Outcome of the Dred Scott Case: African Americans are not considered citizens. They are like property of their slave owners.
