Pennoyer v. Neff, By God!
posted by Dave Hoffman
One of Kevin Clermont’s Cornell civil procedure students lives “about ten minutes away from where our esteemed friend Sylvester Pennoyer is buried.” Pennoyer, as you will recall, is a party in one of the best known Supreme Court cases of all times — at least, best known by lawyers. The student took some photos of Pennoyer’s grave, which Kevin then shared with the Civ Pro Listserv.
Pennoyer rests at ”Riverview Cemetery … located just south of Portland overlooking the Willamette river.” RIP, Sylvester.
