Abstract

This article explains why it is incorrect to characterize Ex parte Merryman as a decision of the Supreme Court of the United States, or as a decision for the United States Circuit Court for the District of Maryland, or as a decision for the United States District Court for the District of Maryland.

So what court decided Ex parte Merryman (1861)?
