References to Mill in court decisions can be found by a simple Google search of “Mill + Court.” The decision here is relatively brief, and the online version (http://homepages.udayton.edu/~ulrichlp/brophy.htm) does not have page numbers. A search for “Mill” within the document leads directly to the material cited.

Friendly's opinion of Mill and the Constitution was disclosed by Randolph (who had clerked for Friendly) in Friendly's unpublished papers, in the possession of Harvard Law School. Randolph's article was an extension of a talk that he had given to the Federalist Society in 2005: http://www.fed-soc.org/publications/pubID.368/pub_detail.asp.
