One of his earliest accomplishments was his work as draftsman of the 1851 California Practice Act. He was appointed to the United States Supreme Court in 1863 and remained on the bench until 1897. He also served a concurrent term as a circuit court judge for the Pacific states. One of the great justices of the nineteenth century, he had a lasting influence on constitutional law through his contributions to Fourteenth Amendment jurisprudence and its Due Process Clause. Dictionary of American Biography III:373. In this book Pomeroy [1828-1885], the equally influential author of the Treatise on Equity Jurisprudence and other important works, surveys and analyzes every significant opinion delivered by Field throughout his career, with an emphasis on his years in the U.S. Supreme Court and on the circuit. --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.
