On May 4, 2016, Sam Elliott was the speaker for the Chattanooga Bar Association’s annual Law Day luncheon, speaking to the bar and its guests on The Quo Warranto Cases of 1870:  When the United States Attorney Sued to Remove Half the Tennessee Supreme Court”, an interesting and forgotten chapter of Tennessee legal history he discovered in the context of researching his new book on Confederate General and Tennessee governor John C. Brown.
