Barrett on Justice Jackson and Brown v. Board of Education

National Law Journal published an essay by Professor John Q. Barrett on the writing of the historic opinion in Brown v. Board of Education that was issued sixty years ago today.  In the piece,  Warren, Jackson Honed ‘Brown’ Decision in Hospital,  Professor Barrett describes the meeting between Chief Justice Warren and Justice Jackson in the latter’s hospital room regarding both the draftsmanship of the opinion and specific holdings.  The essay was originally published as part of the Jackson List.
