Two Bronze Doors

Oral argument at the courthouse.

Sarah and David reach peak AO and fulfill their promise of delivering something stratospherically nerdy. Judge Charles Eskridge for the Southern District of Texas has written a 56-page history of the Supreme Court building… and specifically its 17-foot, 13-ton bronze doors. Judge Eskridge tells the story depicted on the door’s eight panels and what it says about our history of ordered liberty.
