Correction. No, this is not a correction of a misstatement I have made on this blog -- or anywhere else for that matter. I am correcting a misstatement of fact made by Jeffrey Toobin in his fascinating book on the Supreme Court, The Nine. On page 77, Toobin states that Judges Richard Arnold and Morris Arnold "were the only brothers in American history to serve on the same federal court of appeals.
Well, apparently Toobin has never heard of Augustus Hand and Billings Learned Hand of the Second Circuit.
