Library

This won’t include every publication about the subject, but will look at some of the more interesting ones, including my take on its value.

Texas Lawyer: The Life of William H. Burges, by J.F. Hulse. Burges provided the defense for the Deportation trial when it finally came about and was successful in defending Harry Wootten — and in getting all the rest of the cases dismissed — by employing the “law of necessity.”

This 1982 volume isn’t easy to come by and I was fortunate that a library over in Silver City was getting rid of it. Only four of the 37 chapters cover the Deportation trial, but the information is valuable.
