Summary
A visit with former Supreme Court justice William J. Brennan, Jr., who has been called America's "most unyielding defender of individual rights." Brennan served through seven presidencies and wrote close to 500 majority opinions. Time and again, he argued that the protection of individual freedom is found in judicial enforcement of constitutional rights. In the early 1960s, Brennan's arguments turned the country's political map upside down and changed, forever, the Court's role in political matters.
