This week’s prize is the book “Men in Black: How the Supreme Court Is Destroying America”
Born on July 10th 1723, this renowned English Jurist played a leading role in forming the basis of law in America. He taught that man is created by God and granted fundamental rights by God and that Man’s law must be based on God’s law. When scholars examined nearly 15,000 items written by the Founding Fathers from 1760 to 1805 (including books, newspapers articles, monographs, pamphlets, etc.), they found that he was quoted more than any other author except one. His highly influential work, Commentaries on the Laws of England, was basic to the U. S. Constitution and by 1775 had sold more copies in America than in England. Name this highly influential English Jurist.
