Fact of the Day: Louis Brandeis

Louis Brandeis was a Supreme Court justice nominated by Woodrow Wilson. He was the first Jewish person to sit on the court, and was one of most the famous and influential people to ever sit on the court. Many scholars admired him for his grand defenses for the freedom of speech and to the right to privacy.
