United States v. Butler

(297 U.S. 1 1936)
   On 6 January 1936, the Supreme Court ruled in United States v. Butler that the processing tax introduced in the Agricultural Adjustment Act of 1933 was “a means to an unconstitutional end” that was, to “regulate and control agriculture.” This was a major setback for President Franklin D. Roosevelt and the New Deal.
