Arthur A. Thomas: A Hero Of A Valet, Todd C. Peppers Jan 2022

Arthur A. Thomas: A Hero Of A Valet, Todd C. Peppers

Scholarly Articles

During his time on the Supreme Court, Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr. was the beneficiary of adulation from his legal secretaries (today we refer to them as law clerks) and young legal scholars, like Felix Frankfurter and Harold Laski. While the Justice basked in the warm glow of their hero worship, he was quick to point out to them that “no man is a hero to his valet.” The phrase was not original to Holmes, although the expression sounds like it sprang from his clever mind. The underlying meaning is simple—the servant tending daily to his employer sees flaws and …


The Chief Justice And The Page: Earl Warren, Charles Bush, And The Promise Of Brown V. Board Of Education, Todd C. Peppers Jan 2022

The Chief Justice And The Page: Earl Warren, Charles Bush, And The Promise Of Brown V. Board Of Education, Todd C. Peppers

Scholarly Articles

In October Term 1954, the Supreme Court heard oral arguments regarding the implementation of the Brown decision. The resulting opinion is commonly referred to as “Brown II.” In his unanimous opinion, Chief Justice Earl Warren ordered local school districts to desegregate their schools “with all deliberate speed.” Supporters of immediate integration were dismayed by the vague language, which ultimately allowed southern states to use a variety of tactics to deliberately evade and resist the Court’s mandate that public schools be desegregated.

What has been forgotten in the discussion of Brown II and the “all deliberate speed” standard is that …


Gertrude Jenkins, Unplugged, Todd C. Peppers Jan 2022

Gertrude Jenkins, Unplugged, Todd C. Peppers

Scholarly Articles

Gertrude Jenkins worked for U.S. Chief Justice Harlan Fiske Stone until his death in 1946. Adept at multi-tasking, she also ran a boarding house to make more money. A position as a floating secretary was created for Jenkins at the Court, and she worked in other chambers as well as the Court library until October 1949, when she accepted a position in Justice Frankfurter’s chambers. Jenkins retired in August 1953.

Gertrude Jenkins’s letters neither shed light on the grand constitutional issues of her day nor provide insights into the justices’ jurisprudential views. They will not cause historians to radically reevaluate …

Honoring Lutie A. Lytle And John Mercer Langston With Our Words, Carliss Chatman Jan 2022

Honoring Lutie A. Lytle And John Mercer Langston With Our Words, Carliss Chatman

Washington and Lee Law Review

The recent attacks on critical race theory make one fact very clear: the lack of Black voices in public discourse creates distortion and exploitation. This inaugural Black Scholars Book, the first of its kind published annually, is not about defining or justifying critical race theory—as some scholars in this book would not deem themselves to be critical race theorists. Instead, it is about righting the wrongs that enable the weaponization of scholarship by and about Black people. The goal of the W&L Law Review is to hold space for scholarship of historically marginalized and silenced voices. This inaugural book contains …

In Memoriam Professor Emeritus Egon Guttmon, Claudio Grossman, Walter A. Effross, David V. Synder

Articles in Law Reviews & Other Academic Journals

When I think about Egon, the first thing that comes to mind are the memories when we met in 1982 at the Washington College of Law (WCL), where he was working as a full-time faculty member. I was coming at that time from my sabbatical in the Netherlands and as a Fulbright Scholar. From the beginning, Egon sought to provide me with a welcoming environment. He approached me, finding shared backgrounds and interests, which is always greatly appreciated, particularly when you are in a new institution. Egon noted that we both had an intellectual interest in international law. In addition …

Chief Justice John Roberts: Institutionalist Or Hubris-In-Chief?, Eric J. Segall Oct 2021

Chief Justice John Roberts: Institutionalist Or Hubris-In-Chief?, Eric J. Segall

Washington and Lee Law Review Online

The conventional wisdom among Supreme Court scholars and commentators is that Chief Justice John Roberts is an institutionalist who cares deeply about both his personal legacy and the Supreme Court’s prestige over time. This essay challenges that belief. While the Chief certainly cares about how the Court is perceived by the public, as do most of the justices, what most defines Roberts is his hubris—not a concern for the Court’s legitimacy or even his own place in history. Across the vast landscape of constitutional law, Roberts has distorted precedent and ignored text and history to further his own policy preferences. …

Keep Passing The Baton: Reflections On The Legacy Of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Angela Onwuachi-Willig Oct 2021

Keep Passing The Baton: Reflections On The Legacy Of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Angela Onwuachi-Willig

Faculty Scholarship

For those who care about justice, particularly for marginalized communities, September 18, 2020 brought immense heartbreak.2 On that day, which happened to be Rosh Hashanah, Justice Ginsburg, who had previously written about how her religious background shaped her career as a lawyer, 3 passed away.

When Justice Ginsburg passed, many highlighted that a person who dies on Rosh Hashanah, the start of the Jewish New Year, is a "Tzadik," which is a title given to people of great righteousness. 4 For example, Nina Totenberg, a reporter for National Public Radio, explained, "A Jewish teaching says those who died just …

The Jurisprudence Of The First Woman Judge, Florence Allen: Challenging The Myth Of Women Judging Differently, Tracy A. Thomas May 2021

The Jurisprudence Of The First Woman Judge, Florence Allen: Challenging The Myth Of Women Judging Differently, Tracy A. Thomas

William & Mary Journal of Race, Gender, and Social Justice

This Article delves into the life and work of Judge [Florence] Allen to provide insight to the contributions and jurisprudence of the first woman judge.

Part II discusses her pivotal work with the women’s suffrage movement, working with the national organizations in New York and leading the legal and political efforts in Ohio. This proactive commitment to gender justice, however, …
