The Detroit Land Bank Authority celebrates the life and legacy of U.S. Court of Appeals Judge Damon J. Keith. Judge Keith was a legal icon who worked to use the law to end school segregation and housing discrimination. His other landmark decision was ruling wiretapping without a warrant unconstitutional.
