In 1857 the Supreme Court ruled 7 to 2 in Dred Scott v. Sandford that blacks were not citizens of the United States and could not bring suit in a court of law. The Dred Scott Decision held that blacks who were brought here as slaves or their descendents were not protected by the Constitution. This decision was contrary to the practice in many of the Free states at the time. The Court also ruled that slaves could not be taken away from their owners without due process.
