Narrator: Pauling led a group trying a new tactic -- filing suits in Soviet, British and American courts to stop more testing because
it would do genetic damage.
Linus Pauling: This is something that is so terrible a question, that every possible attack on it needs to be made. And I believe that
to file these suits is one way of attacking the problem.
Narrator: The American Supreme Court refused to hear the case.
