In June 2013, in Los Angeles, the NJCHS and the California Supreme Court Historical Society co-sponsored a multimedia program exploring state’s rights and federalism as illustrated by notorious events in the life of California Supreme Court Chief Justice David Terry (1855-59).

The program was held in the Ronald Reagan State Office Building in Los Angeles, Over 150 attendees enjoyed the program, which featured judges from the U.S. District Court and the California Court of Appeal reading original documents about Terry’s duel with a U.S. senator, his 1856 clash with the San Francisco Vigilance Committee, and his 1889 assault on U.S. Supreme Court Justice Stephen Field.
