Re: 150th Anniversary of Substantive Due Process


On the Dred Scott case:  The Green Bag, which accurately describes itself as an “entertaining journal of law,” features in its forthcoming issue an account of Dred Scott written by George T. Curtis, who was the younger brother of dissenting justice Benjamin R. Curtis and who also appeared as counsel for Dred Scott.  That account is downloadable here.


Collectors of the Green Bag’s bobblehead justices will also find of interest that the next bobblehead will be of Justice Curtis.
