Judge Benton Contributes to New Book on Dred Scott Case

Circuit Judge Duane Benton contributed a chapter to a newly published book called The Dred Scott Case: Historical and Contemporary Perspectives on Race and Law. The book is the result of original research and analysis by a group of scholars who met in St. Louis on the 150th Anniversary of this infamous decision.

The chapter by Judge Benton is about Scott v. Emerson, the predecessor decision by the Missouri Supreme Court.

Copies of the book are now available at our St. Louis and Kansas City libraries at KF 4545 .S5 D73.
