In 1943 and 1944 the U.S. Supreme Court upheld the military orders that forced over 120,000 Japanese Americans into American incarceration camps. It took almost 40 years to overturn the convictions of Fred Korematsu and others who violated the orders with the "smoking gun" evidence of governmental misconduct. In 2018 the Supreme Court repudiated its decision in Korematsu while approving President Trump's controversial travel ban.
