And Justice for All:
A History of the Federal District Court of Eastern Missouri was written by
Burton A. Boxerman and published on September 15, 2014 by the Southeast Missouri
State University Press. Mr. Boxerman is a retired teacher of American history
and government and holds a Ph.D. from Saint Louis University.
This book was a project of the Eastern District’s Senior
Judge E. Richard Webber, who serves on the Board of the Historical Society of
the United States Courts in the Eighth Circuit. Judge Webber formed a committee
of experts including prominent attorneys who, like himself, are passionate about
legal history, and worked with author and historian Boxerman who brought it all
to life in words.
The 542 page book begins with a history of the federal
judiciary and its selection process. As the story of the Eastern District
unfolds, the reader sees photos of the district’s past and present federal
judges (district, magistrate and bankruptcy) and courthouses.
Also included are images of docket sheets
from the Dred Scott case, a bibliography, and index.
