Chapter 5 discusses the views of freedoms of press and speech of the other six pre-Marshall justices of the US Supreme Court, prior to when some altered their views during the various battles over the Sedition Act of 1798, based on their published as well as unpublished writings. Those successor justices of the Supreme Court were Thomas Johnson, William Paterson, Samuel Chase, Oliver Ellsworth, Bushrod Washington, and Alfred Moore. None of them adopted William Blackstone’s narrow approach to liberties of press and speech prior to 1798, though four did thereafter. Instead, all articulated expansive views of those liberties prior to 1798.
