Storyline

Justice Stephen Field fights alone to protect private contracts from government interference under the rubric of "liberty of contract" in the late 1800's. When the Court begins to side with Field after his death in the early 1900's, Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes tries to roll back what he sees as judicial activism by the court until FDR ends the "liberty of contract" era by threatening to "pack" the Court with his supporters.
