Description:
(1906-1997) New Jersey Supreme Court Justice 1952-1956, Assoc. Justice 1956-90. During his term on the Court, he was a leader of the judicially liberal wing of the Court with outspoken progressive views, including opposition to the death penalty and support for abortion rights. He authored several landmark case opinions, including Baker v. Carr, ("one man, one vote" principle), and New York Times Co. v. Sullivan, which required proof of "actual malice" in a libel suit against those deemed "public figures". Due to his ability to shape a wide variety of opinions, and to bargain for votes in many cases, he was considered among the Court's most influential members. Justice Brennan was presented with the Presidential Medal of Freedom by President Clinton in 1993. Signed cacheted 3 ¾ x 6 ½ envelope featuring portrait of President Nixon and commemorating his 2nd Inaugural, postmarked “Inauguration Day”, Washington, January 20 1973.
