Forte Cited in Urofsky’s Great Constitutional Cases and Their Impact

 Melvin I. Urofsky, an eminent legal and constitutional historian at Virginia Commonwealth University, has just published Supreme Decisions: Great Constitutional Cases and Their Impact (Westview Press, 2012).  The first case he discusses is “The Case of the Disappointed Office-Seeker: Marbury v. Madison (1803).”
In the notes on “Further Reading” at the end of the article, Urofsky states, “Information about the plaintiff is drawn primarily from David F. Forte, ‘Marbury’s Travail: Federalist Politics and William Marbury’s Appointment as Justice of the Peace,” 45 Catholic Law Review 349 (1996).”  C|M|LAW Professor Forte is in estimable company in this endnote, as other works cited there are by William Nelson, Kent Newmyer, Charles Hobson, and Richard Ellis, all of whom have written important books on the early Supreme Court, Marshall, Jefferson, and/or Marbury.
