21 Virginia Law Review 35 (1934)

Abstract

It is especially appropriate to publish in the Virginia Law Review the first extensive commentary of the Federal Declaratory Judgements Act. The credit for its enactment falls largely to ex-Governor, now Representative, Andrew J. Montague, of Virginia, who piloted the Act through the House of Representatives on four separate occasions. His persistence over a period of many years was finally rewarded when on June 14, 1934, President Roosevelt signed the Act giving the Federal Courts power to render such judgements.
