In 1916, President Woodrow Wilson appointed Louis Dembitz Brandeis (1856-1941) as Associate Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court. Brandeis, the first Jewish Associate Justice, who had established his reputation of handling cases involving social problems during a year of legal practice in Boston, had come to specialize in labor-management suits and developed the Brandeis brief, still used as a legal reference. Brandeis' support of President Wilson's theory of enforced business competition and his crusade against monopolies led to the passage of the Federal Trade Commission Act (1914) as well as Brandeis' appointment. Until his retirement in 1939 at the age of 82, Brandeis continued to make his mark on the issues of labor, competition, economics and social reform. Two items.
