James Clark McReynolds (February 3, 1862 – August 24, 1946) was an American jurist who served as an Associate Justice on the U.S. Supreme Court from 1914 to 1941. Prior to his tenure on the bench, he was U.S. Attorney General under President Woodrow Wilson. He pursued vigorous anti-trust prosecutions during his time at the executive branch, but as a justice he was very conservative, known as one of the "Four Horsemen" who usually opined to strike down "New Deal" policies by President Frank D. Roosevelt during the Great Depression.
