William Henry Moody was a politician and jurist who held position in all three branches of the United States government: the executive branch (as Attorney General and Secretary of the Navy), the legislative branch (as a member of the House of Representatives) and the judicial branch (as an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court).[1] As a justice, he wrote the Court's opinion for Twining v. New Jersey - which held that the 14th Amendment's due process clause did not incorporate the 5th Amendment's right against self incrimination; his opinion would be overturned by Malloy v. Hogan.[1]
