Lawyers attempt to analogize their case to favorable precedents and to distinguish it from adverse precedents. Courts, in deciding cases, do the same thing. When it is not possible to distinguish from adverse precedent, but the court feels the precedent is wrong, a court may overrule its previous decision. A classic example is the Supreme Court's decision in Brown v. Board of Education (1954) in which the court overruled the longstanding precedent of Plessy v. Ferguson (1896). The earlier decision held that separate but equal facilities for different races did not violate the equal protection clause of the Fourteenth Amendment, whereas, in Brown the Supreme Court held that racially segregated facilities are inherently unequal.
