I was quite pleased to see Justice Brennan on the list. To paraphrase a line from The West Wing, if William Brennan was a religion, I'd convert. Unfortunately, objectively he seems quite forgettable. With the exception of an academic center at NYU Law School, his jurispudence does not seem to be as influential as many of his admirers wish was the case. He wrote some memorable dissents (but alas, they were dissents and not holdings). There is not even a rest-stop (out of many) named in his honor on the New Jersey Turnpike.
