As we enter the dog days of summer, we might as well do a new poll for some amusement. This time readers are asked to rank order the most important American judges of the 20th-century. No doubt I've missed some really good ones, but hopefully there are enough of the major federal and state judges to make the list worthwhile. Only judges who did most of their important work in the 20th-century *and* who are no longer living were eligible. Have fun! I'll leave this poll open through July 4th.
