March 31, 2005

Asian American civil rights pioneer Fred Korematsu, who challenged the detention of Japanese Americans during World War II, died Wednesday of respiratory failure.

Korematsu's conviction for violating the presidential order that authorized the internment of Japanese Americans is a landmark case in constitutional law and Asian American history.
