John O. Peters’ work entitled From Marshall to Moussaoui: Federal Justice in the Eastern District of Virginia is quite an accomplishment. Through the historical lens the reader quickly is transported to the times of the anecdotes that are sprinkled liberally across the pages. The U.S. District Court comes alive as Peters focuses the reader’s attention on the brilliance – and the human foibles – of the jurists who have presided over cases that range from treason and trespass, to liquor and libel, and from civil war to civil rights. Collectively, the judges, lawyers and litigants personify the history of this important court of justice. It is also a rich and robust reflection of the history of America.
