Chief Justice revokes assignment of lower Court judge in the District of Columbia.
Typed Letter Signed: "Earl Warren" as Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, 1p, 8x10½. Washington, D.C., 1953 December 19. To Finis J. Garrett, Chief Judge, U.S. Court of Customs and Patent Appeals, Washington, D.C. In full: "I have signed and forwarded to the Clerk of your Court revocation of your assignment to perform the duties of district judge and hold a district court in the District of Columbia. While I regret losing your services on this court, I can understand and appreciate your reasons for asking to be relieved. Thank you for your assistance in the past. I also have signed and forwarded to your Clerk designation of the Honorable Eugene Worley to serve as a judge of the District Court for the District of Columbia from January 12, 1954, to and including February 12, 1954, and for such further time as may be required to complete unfinished business. With my best wishes for a very happy holiday season." Earl Warren (1891-1974) served as Attorney General of California (1938-1942), and then as Governor (1942-1953). He was the Republican nominee for Vice President in 1948, running with Thomas E. Dewey in the close contest won by Harry Truman. Nominated by Eisenhower and confirmed as Chief Justice of the Supreme Court in 1954, Warren was immediately faced with the historic cases of Brown vs Board of Education of Topeka, Kansas. He worked to achieve unanimous decisions in favor of school desegregation "with all deliberate speed." The Warren Court was controversial for decisions which defined broadly the range of constitutionally protected civil rights and civil liberties. Warren retired in 1968 and died in 1974. Fine condition.
