    John Marshall was one of the most influential and important justices in SCOTUS history and the decisions covered remain the foundation of America's justice system. But the narrator's monotonous robotic reading detracts from the substance and effectively transforms Marshall's cogent, eloquent prose into a painful listening experience. Read it yourself instead.
