The Great Cases, No. 3
At my sub-blog, I have completed the third of my “Great Cases” series of posts. This installment introduces us to an eccentric British nobleman, the personal assets of America’s then-leading jurist, the collapse of America’s first political party, a rather swashbuckling piece of litigation, the legal concessions the fledgling United States had to make to gain international recognition, and a nice dose of political philosophy to go along with the political machinations surrounding who exactly owned five entire counties of northern Virginia. Please take a moment to drop by and learn the story of Martin v. Hunter’s Lessee.
