Mahlon Pitney was an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States, as well as a congressman from New Jersey. He was appointed to the Court by President William Howard Taft - though, later, Taft would join the Court as its Chief Justice, and would criticize Pitney as a weak member.[1] He was an economic conservative, generally anti-union and anti-monopoly, as both of these distorted the marketplace.[2]
