Horace Gray was an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States. He served on the Massachusetts Supreme Court for 17 years, at one point hiring a clerk who would also be a U.S. Supreme Court justice - Louis Brandeis.[1]

On the U.S. Court, Gray notably authored the majority opinion for Juilliard v. Greenman, which ruled that the United States could issue paper money against its credit in times of peace as well as war.[2] In Fong Yue Ting v. United States, Gray wrote that resident aliens could not claim the protections of the U.S. Constitution.[2]

Horace Gray joined the majority opinion in Plessy v. Ferguson in 1896, effectively exposing himself as a RINO.
