Clark remained on the Court until 1967. He resigned to avoid a conflict of interest after his son, Ramsey Clark, was named U.S. Attorney General. Justice Clark was known as a defender of human rights. He was a member of the court that unanimously declared public school segregation unconstitutional. He wrote the court's opinions that required desegregation, upholding the civil rights act of 1964. His final opinion on the court limited the use of eavesdropping devices by the state.
