Case Broderick (September 23, 1839 – April 1, 1920) was a U.S. Representative from Kansas.

Born near Marion, Indiana, Case Broderick was a cousin of David Colbreth Broderick and Andrew Kennedy. Broderick attended the common schools in Indiana. He moved to Holton, Kansas, in 1858 and engaged in agricultural pursuits. Case Broderick married Mary A. Ewbank on August 23, 1860 in Jackson County, Kansas Territory.[2] Mary was born in Dearborn Co. in Southeast Indiana, May 12, 1831.[3]

During the Civil War, he enlisted as a private in the Kansas 2nd Light Artillery Battery 27 May 1863 and was mustered out at Leavenworth 11 August 1865.[4]

He then studied law, was admitted to the bar in 1870 and commenced practice in Holton, Kansas. He served as mayor of Holton in 1874 and 1875, and was prosecuting attorney of Jackson County 1876-1880. He was a member of the Kansas Senate 1880-1884. He was appointed by President Arthur as an associate justice of the Supreme Court of the Territory of Idaho in March 1884 and took up his residence in Boise City, Idaho. He served until the fall of 1888, when he returned to Holton, Kansas, and resumed the practice of law. His wife, Mary, died November 13, 1888.[5]

Broderick was elected as a Republican to the Fifty-second and to the three succeeding Congresses (March 4, 1891-March 3, 1899). He was an unsuccessful candidate for renomination in 1898. He again engaged in the practice of law in Holton, Kansas. He retired from the practice of law and devoted his time to farming and livestock interests. He died in Holton, April 1, 1920. He was interred in Holton Cemetery.
