In 1833, the Supreme Court held in the case Barron v. Baltimore that the Bill of Rights applied only to the federal government and not to any state governments. It wasn’t until the 14th Amendment was ratified that the Bill of Rights was applied to the States. This is known as the incorporation doctrine. Through this doctrine, American courts applied portions of the Bill of Rights to the states through the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment.
