Encyclopedia > Richard Rives

Richard Rives, the sole Democrat among the "Fifth Circuit Four", was a judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit 1950s and 1960s, when that court became known for a series of decisions crucial in advancing the civil rights of African-Americans. At that time, the Fifth Circuit included not only Louisiana, Mississippi, and Texas (its jurisdiction as of 2004), but also Alabama, Georgia, Florida, and the Panama Canal Zone.


According to Jack Bass, Rives, an Alabaman, was an intimate of Supreme Court justice Hugo Black.
