Not something you can sit down and read in one sitting but chapter by chapter was great.

...walking through time through halls where any court case ended justly...inspiring writing like Justice Jackson's "West Virginia v. Barnette" and Justice Kennedy's "Lawrence v.

Topeka Board of Education"..things I haven't found anywhere else to read..:)
