Here’s a fascinating Washington Post story about an estate sale for the wife of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Potter Stewart. The estate sale offered a window into Washington social life during Justice Stewart’s career and also allowed a few aspiring lawyers to obtain some classic memorabilia, such as the Justice’s briefcase. A lawyer’s soft leather briefcase, just like his or her pen and legal pad (or computer and smart phone), is an integral part of the lawyer’s practice and professional image and reputation.
