  3. " ... in which the Court held that African Americans, whether slave or free, could not be American citizens and therefore had no standing to sue in federal court, and that the federal government had no power to regulate slavery in the federal territories acquired after the creation of the United States. Dred Scott, an African American slave who had been taken by his owners to free states and territories, attempted to sue for his freedom. In a 7–2 decision written by Chief Justice Roger B. Taney, the Court denied Scott's request."

    Please re-read and re-think.

  6. i thougt it was c because of the first part of the paragraph, a i just guessed.
    but no reading it over... i think it would be the last one cause of this part of the paragraph:
    Dred Scott, an African American slave who had been taken by his owners to free states and territories, attempted to sue for his freedom. In a 7–2 decision written by Chief Justice Roger B. Taney, the Court denied Scott's request.

  10. I agree with you on c.

    " ... the court denied Scott's request" -- so it can't be d. If it had been d, it wouldn't have reached the court in the first place.
