"If we move away from the American tradition of lawyers defending those with whom they vehemently disagree -- as we temporarily did during the McCarthy period -- we weaken our commitment to the rule of law... So beware of an approach which limits advocacy to that which is approved by the standards of political correctness."
(1938- ) Felix Frankfurter Professor of Law at Harvard Law School
Sexual McCarthyism, 1998
