What happens when a Supreme Court justice votes to dissent from a ruling but doesn’t actually write a dissenting opinion?
Chief Justice Salmon Chase was too sick to write a dissent in Bradwell v. Illinois, where the majority said the 14th Amendment did not protect a woman’s right to practice law as an attorney. Could a written dissent by Chase have changed the entire trajectory of history? What would he have said about the Constitution’s protection for women? Did his relationship with his daughter, Kate, influence his views? And would Salmon, Kate, and Myra Bradwell be household names today instead of being forgotten by history? Tune in to find out.
