Judge Randolph on Judge Friendly's pre-Roe Abortion Opinion

For those who missed Judge Randolph's lecture at the lawyer's convention in DC, Fed Soc has posted the transcript that I highly recommend. Judge Randolph's lecture was a fantastic story of how during his clerkship with Judge Friendly they heard the first substantive due process challenge to an abortion restriction in Federal Court. The case was heard in 1970, 3 years before Roe, and Judge Friendly's opinion is a fantastic, even prophetic, argument about the problems with a Roe-like substantive due process extension of Griswold. The opinion was never published because prior to the decision the New York legislature amended the abortion statute, making the case moot. Fantastic read.

UPDATE: George Will discusses here.
