The Opening Brief

Website | RSS

This blawg "is devoted to appellate decisions and issues, and I hope to generate a discussion on the direction of the law in these pages. Not so much whether we agree or disagree with a particular decision—after all, who wants that kind of written record when you are up for confirmation? Instead, I am interested in discussing the impact of the decisions on a particular area of law, where we think the law might be headed, and what arguments we might make in the next case. I am open to all viewpoints, and I hope to generate a lively discussion. If there is a particular decision you would like to discuss, please send me an e-mail, and I will add it to the menu."
