How is this case similar to Tom Robinson's trial? How is it different?
The trials were different because in the Scottsboro case there were multiple defendants and plaintiffs, and in the Tom Robinson case there was one defendant and two plaintiffs, Mayella and Bob Ewell. Tom Robinson was old enough to have a wife and family, but the Scottsboro boys were younger, the youngest being thirteen years old.(5)
