Levi Woodbury (December 22, 1789 – September 4, 1851) was an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States who also served in the other two branches of government: the executive (as Secretary of the Navy and Secretary of the Treasury (in the cabinet)) and the legislative (as a senator from New Hampshire), as well as serving as New Hampshire's governor.
He was a strong advocate of states rights, saying, "I carry with me, as a controlling principle, the proposition that state powers, state rights, and state decisions are to be upheld when the objection to them is not clear."
