“State of North Carolina ex rel. John B. Regan, etc. v. Invisible Empire, United Klans, Knights Ku Klux Klan, etc., et al. Robeson County, North Carolina, Superior Court, March 17 and April 22, 1966.” Race Relations Law Reporter 11 (Fall 1966): 1162-65.
Gives the text of a temporary restraining order to prevent the Klan from holding a rally planned for March 27, 1966; also gives the later order which dissolved the restraining order. The judge justified the restraining order by: the results of the 1958 Klan rally; the Klan’s previous acts of violence in North Carolina; inflammatory notices of the planned rally mailed to Indians in Robeson County; and the fact that “feelings and effects generated by the 1958 rally still exist …” so that another rally would result in “a general uprising against the Klan” and “irreparable harm and damage,” making it “impossible for local law enforcement to maintain peace.”
