        Supreme Court justice and chief US prosecutor at Nuremberg. His cross-examination of Hermann Goering was considered very ineffective.

          Either this guy is so dumb that he never should have been nominated to the Supreme Court, or he's really an evil genius: I can't decide which.

            The "switch in time that saved nine."

            “The switch in time that saved nine” is the name given to what was perceived as the sudden jurisprudential shift by Associate Justice Owen J. Roberts of the U.S. Supreme Court in West Coast Hotel Co. v. Parrish.[1] Conventional historical accounts portrayed the Court's majority opinion as a strategic political move to protect the Court's integrity and independence from President Franklin Roosevelt's court-reform bill (also known as the "court-packing plan"), which would have expanded the size of the bench up to 15 justices.

            snip

            Through the 1935-36 terms, Roberts had been the deciding vote in several 5-4 decisions invalidating New Deal legislation, casting his vote with the "conservative" bloc of the bench, the so-called "Four Horsemen".[3] This "conservative" wing of the bench is viewed to have been in opposition to the "liberal Three Musketeers".[4] Justice Roberts and Chief Justice Charles Evans Hughes, the remaining two justices, were the center swing votes.[5]

            The "switch" came in the case West Coast Hotel Co. v. Parrish.[1] Roberts joined Chief Justice Hughes, and Justices Louis Brandeis, Benjamin N. Cardozo, and Harlan Fiske Stone in upholding a Washington State minimum wage law. The decision was handed down less than two months after President Franklin Delano Roosevelt announced his court-reform bill. Conventional history has painted Roberts's vote as a strategic, politically motivated shift to defeat Roosevelt's proposed legislation, but the historical record lends weight to assertions that Roberts's decision happened much earlier.[6]
