May 6, 1837. Four documents, legal sized. Six total pages. Samuel Nelson (b. 1792, d. 1873) was a United States Supreme Court Justice from 1845 to 1872. He is remembered for his strict interpretation of the United States Constitution and for writing a preliminary majority opinion in the Dred Scott case. Nelson was earlier a lawyer in New York and sat on the State Supreme Court from 1831 to 1845. This ruling is from his time on that court. In this document, the lawyers for the defendants, George W. Wright and Samuel Sherwood (b. 1799, d. 1862) argue that a Referee's Report on the case is being circulated and treated as fact without due process. Nelson agrees with the appeal and orders the proceeding staid until the matter can again be heard before the court. Two of the documents deal with setting the court date and showing that a Mr. Bowdain, attorney for the plaintiffs, has been given notice. Bookseller Inventory # 12354
