While Virginia and other states have recently apologized for their role in the involuntary sterilization of those labeled as "feebleminded", the Supreme Court ruling that sanctioned those sterilizations has never been overruled - so the precedent still stands.

But the case of Carrie Buck also established a precedent in deception: Carrie Buck's lawyer conspired with the opposing lawyer to guarantee that her challenge would fail, so that the sterilization law would be upheld by the highest court.

This is a presentation revealing the strategy of deception that masquerades as justice in the US.
