    Madalyn Murray, 10/06/65: Attorney Maury Maverick questions his client, atheist activist Madalyn Murray (later known as Madalyn Murray O'Hair), during her extradition hearing in San Antonio. Murray was charged with assaulting Baltimore Police Sergeant Charles Kelly on June 20, 1964. During the extradition hearing, Murray testified before Texas Secretary of State Crawford Martin that she feared she would be murdered should she return to Maryland. After reviewing the evidence, Texas Governor John Connally issued an order of extradition. Murray's legal team, consisting of lawyers from the Texas Civil Liberties Union, appealed the decision. A Maryland judge ultimately dismissed the original indictment on October 27, ending the extradition battle. Murray moved to Austin in 1965, where she established the American Atheists Center and the Society of Separationists.
