Judge Keith has rendered many decisions in his nearly fifty years on the bench, but only one bares his name. The “Keith Case,” as it has come to be known in legal circles, refers to the supreme court case that resulted from Judge Keith’s landmark decision that the government, in conducting warrantless wiretaps of American citizens, had overstepped the bounds of the constitution. In his decision on this case, Keith ruled against the Nixon White House, contradicting the U.S. Attorney General and the President of the United States. Judge Keith soon found himself facing down a writ of mandamus and was involved in an entirely new lawsuit: United States vs. United States District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan. Eventually, Keith’s precedent setting decision was upheld 8-0 by the supreme court. For the courage, determination, and commitment Judge Keith showed, it is fitting that this case should bare his name.
