Charles Warren (1868-1954) was an American lawyer and legal scholar who won a Pulitzer Prize for his book "The Supreme Court in United States History" (1922). Warren disagreed with historian Charles A. Beard's economic analysis of the Constitution published in 1912, but by 1925 as a progressive Warren agreed that the court's conservative analysis was strait-jacketing Congress, a theme he elaborated in this book, "Congress, the Constitution, and the Supreme Court". Justice Louis Brandeis cited the work in Erie Railroad v. Tompkins (1938), which cut back on forum-shopping by wealthy litigants using the old case of Swift v. Tyson (1842)..
