Default RIP Dollree Mapp, Ex-Wife of Jimmy Bivens, Party in the Mapp Case

Dollree Mapp was an ex-wife of Jimmy Bivins, a one-time fiancee of Archie Moore and a party in the Mapp Case, which resulted in the landmark 1961 Supreme Court decision dealing with 4th Amendment issues, including mandating that state courts throw out illegally obtained evidence. As a result, she was regarded as the Rosa Parks of the 4th Amendment. According to her obituary in the December 14, 2014 edition of the Los Angeles Times, Mapp passed away due to natural causes at the age of 91 on October 31, 2014 in Conyers, Georgia.

Note- I misspelled Jimmy Bivins' last name in headline.
