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.

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.

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.
