History of The United States Court of Appeals for The District of Columbia Circuit in The Country’s Bicentennial Year
By E. Barrett Prettyman, Jr.
Another history sheds a light on the Court of Appeals. It was written and published in 1976 with the assistance of the Young Lawyers Section of the Bar Association of the District of Columbia.
Read how in 1893 the first case ever before the Court of Appeals, Bush v. District of Columbia, began a tradition of the court that the first decision was not unanimous, or how in 1923, Justice Van Orsdel wrote the standard assessing the admissibility of polygraph testimony and expert scientific evidence in Frye v. United States.
