Character description

Billings Learned Hand (1872-1961): American Federal justice. One of the most influential justices ever not to be a member of the Supreme Court. He was appointed to the second circuit court of appeals in 1924, and stayed there until 1951, when he officially retired. He continued to hear some cases even after that. His reputation is derived mostly from interpretations of statutory and private law rather than constitutional questions.
