Abstract

Professor Casto takes the reader to the very beginnings of the Supreme Court, pre-Marbury v. Madison. In doing so, he focuses most upon the Chief Justiceship of Oliver Ellsworth showing that while the Supreme Court of the early republic was not a cohesive body, that its lessons can be applied to today’s problems.
