Johnson, William

(1771–1834) Supreme Court justice; born in Charleston, S.C. He served in the South Carolina legislature (1794–98) and the state's high court (1798–1804) before President Jefferson named him to the U.S. Supreme Court (1804–34). He often dissented from the opinions of Chief Justice John Marshall, thereby establishing the model for recording dissenting court opinions.
