Earl Warren bol americký právnik a politik, americký guvernér a predseda Najvyššieho súdu USA. Pôsobil taktiež ako minister spravodlivosti v Kalifornii a guvernér v Kalifornii .

Roku 1948 neúspešne kandidoval za republikánov na viceprezidenta USA.

Roku 1952 opäť kandidoval za republikánov na funkciu prezidenta USA, opäť neúspešne. Následne podporoval republikánov pri kandidatúre na funkciu prezidenta USA Dwighta Eisenhowera. Ten ho menoval predsedom Najvyššieho súdu USA. Dňa 1. marca 1954 bol Senátom USA v tejto funkcii potvrdený. Dwight D. Eisenhower neskôr povedal, že to bol jeho najväčší omyl.

Earl Warren sa v Najvyššom súde USA usiloval o to, aby bola rasová segregácia protiústavná a stanovil ako kritérium legislatívneho pomerného zastúpenia zásadu jeden človek, jeden hlas a aby rozšíril väčšiu ochranu Listiny práv na štátnych súdoch. Predsedal taktiež komisii pre vyšetrovanie Atentátu na Johna Fitzgeralda Kennedyho.

Na základe americkej tradície do jeho rúk zložili prísahu títo prezidenti USA:

20. januára 1957 súkromne – 21. januára 1957 verejne Dwight D. Eisenhower

20. januára 1961 – John F. Kennedy

20. januára 1965 – Lyndon B. Johnson

20. januára 1969 – Richard Nixon

Rezignoval v roku 1969.

Citáty Earl Warren

„You sit up there, and you see the whole gamut of human nature.“

—  Earl Warren
Context: You sit up there, and you see the whole gamut of human nature. Even if the case being argued involves only a little fellow and $50, it involves justice. That's what is important. Interview in 1953 after being appointed to the Supreme Court, as quoted in Earl Warren : A Political Biography (1967) by Leo Katcher, p. 315

„These activities are so basically wrong and so menacing to our institutions that every citizen and particularly every public official should oppose them to the limit of their strength.“

—  Earl Warren
Context: I believe the preservation of our civil liberties to be the most fundamental and important of all our governmental problems, because it always has been with us and always will be with us and if we ever permit those liberties to be destroyed, there will be nothing left in our system worthy of preservation. They constitute the soul of democracy. I believe that there is grave danger in this country of losing our civil liberties as they have been lost in other countries. There are things transpiring in this country today that are definitely menacing our future; among which are the activities of Mayor Hague and other little Hagues throughout the country. These activities are so basically wrong and so menacing to our institutions that every citizen and particularly every public official should oppose them to the limit of their strength. Views on civil rights declared in a written statement requested by Robert W. Kenny, read during fund raising luncheon at the Biltmore Hotel, in Los Angeles, in the summer of 1938, quoted in Lawyers Guild Review Vol. 13-14 (1953), p. 47; he mentions Frank Hague, who had declared earlier in the year:

„Prior to any questioning, the person must be warned that he has a right to remain silent, that any statement he does make may be used as evidence against him, and that he has a right to the presence of an attorney, either retained or appointed.“

—  Earl Warren
Context: Prior to any questioning, the person must be warned that he has a right to remain silent, that any statement he does make may be used as evidence against him, and that he has a right to the presence of an attorney, either retained or appointed. The defendant may waive effectuation of these rights, provided the waiver is made voluntarily, knowingly and intelligently. If, however, he indicates in any manner and at any stage of the process that he wishes to consult with an attorney before speaking there can be no questioning. Likewise, if the individual is alone and indicates in any manner that he does not wish to be interrogated, the police may not question him. The mere fact that he may have answered some questions or volunteered some statements on his own does not deprive him of the right of refrain from answering any further inquiries until he has consulted with an attorney and thereafter consents to be questioned. Miranda v. Arizona, 384 U. S. 436, 445 (1965) - Opinion of the Court

„He must be warned prior to any questioning that he has the right to remain silent, that anything he says can be used against him in a court of law, that he has the right to the presence of an attorney, and that, if he cannot afford an attorney one will be appointed for him prior to any questioning if he so desires.“

—  Earl Warren
Context: To summarize, we hold that, when an individual is taken into custody or otherwise deprived of his freedom by the authorities in any significant way and is subjected to questioning, the privilege against self-incrimination is jeopardized. Procedural safeguards must be employed to protect the privilege, and unless other fully effective means are adopted to notify the person of his right of silence and to assure that the exercise of the right will be scrupulously honored, the following measures are required. He must be warned prior to any questioning that he has the right to remain silent, that anything he says can be used against him in a court of law, that he has the right to the presence of an attorney, and that, if he cannot afford an attorney one will be appointed for him prior to any questioning if he so desires. Miranda v. Arizona, 384 U. S. 436, 478-79 (1965)

„The mere fact that he may have answered some questions or volunteered some statements on his own does not deprive him of the right of refrain from answering any further inquiries until he has consulted with an attorney and thereafter consents to be questioned.“

„This concept of "national defense" cannot be deemed an end in itself, justifying any exercise of legislative power designed to promote such a goal.“

—  Earl Warren
Context: This concept of "national defense" cannot be deemed an end in itself, justifying any exercise of legislative power designed to promote such a goal. Implicit in the term "national defense" is the notion of defending those values and ideals which set this Nation apart. For almost two centuries, our country has taken singular pride in the democratic ideals enshrined in its Constitution, and the most cherished of those ideals have found expression in the First Amendment. It would indeed be ironic if, in the name of national defense, we would sanction the subversion of one of those liberties — the freedom of association — which make the defense of our nation worthwhile. United States v. Robel (1967) - Findlaw file http://caselaw.lp.findlaw.com/scripts/getcase.pl?court=US&vol=389&invol=258

„I am unalterably opposed to any species of vigilantes or to any other extra-legal means of a majority exercising its will over a minority“

—  Earl Warren
Context: I am unalterably opposed to any species of vigilantes or to any other extra-legal means of a majority exercising its will over a minority … I believe that if majorities are entitled to have their civil rights protected they should be willing to fight for the same rights to minorities no matter how violently they disagree with their views. Further, I am convinced that this is the only way they can be preserved. I believe that the American concept of civil rights should include not only an observance of our Constitutional Bill of Rights, but also absence of arbitrary action by government in every field. Views on civil rights declared in the summer of 1938, quoted in Justice for All : Earl Warren and the Nation He Made (2006) by Jim Newton, p. 95

Testimony on Internment of people of Japanese Ancestry before the House Select Committee Investigating National Defense Migration (Tolan Committee) in 1941; <!-- as quoted in Legacy of the Transatlantic Slave Trade (2008) by the US House Committee on the Judiciary -->of this statement Warren later said, in The Memoirs of Earl Warren (1977):

„To summarize: Americans have one of the greatest legal systems, but not a monopoly of the sense of justice, which is universal; nor have we a permanent copyright on the means of securing justice, for it is the spirit and not the form of law that keeps justice alive.“
