Kagan, Robert A. "What If Abe Fortas Had Been More Discreet? (1969)"
Divergence: 1966 CE
What if: Supreme Court Justice Fortas was less eager to supplement his income and was less cozy with LBJ's White House.
Comments: Speculation that the effect of a more liberal court in the 1970's would have most noticeable in four cases, particularly one involving busing.
