United States, 325 U.S. 91 (1945), which addressed the criminal provisions of the civil rights acts, is considered ‘the most significant criminal civil rights case decided by the Supreme Court since the end of Reconstruction and still represents the touchstone for federal criminal civil rights doctrine.'”
