The late Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall maintained a secret relationship with the FBI during the 1950s, when he was an attorney for the NAACP. This week, USA Today reported that newly released FBI files show that Marshall cooperated with J. Edgar Hoover’s FBI primarily in the bureau’s anti-communist campaigns.
