"He is bold, willing to innovate, does not himself shrink from broad responsibility and would not have the Court abdicate its powers." This characterization is more applicable to some of the justices of the Supreme Court of the United States for the past decade than it is to others. It is applicable to none more than to Mr. Justice Rutledge and as to him, no more so than when he dealt with the complexities which from time to time plague the Court under the Full Faith and Credit Clause of the Constitution.
