Jonathan Adler writes for the Volokh Conspiracy: This week, Senate Democrats have poked and prodded Judge Neil Gorsuch in an effort to derail his confirmation to the U.S. Supreme Court. They’ve asked about his judicial opinions, his writings, his work for the George W. Bush administration, and even his dissertation adviser. Throughout it all, Gorsuch has been largely unflappable, revealing that he is precisely what all who know him already knew: He’s an intelligent and conscientious, mainstream conservative judge who cares deeply about the judicial craft. Not… [read post]

Hanoch Dagan (Tel Aviv University - Buchmann Faculty of Law) has posted The Real Legacy of American Legal Realism on SSRN. Here is the abstract: Brian Leiter famously described the legacy of American legal realism as a ‘naturalized jurisprudence predicated on a pragmatic outlook’. This essay offers a critical analysis of Leiter’s ambitious and provocative account of legal realism. I argue that, beside many insights, Leiter makes several related mistakes that, eventually, obscure the most important promise of the realist legacy. Leiter understates the realist… [read post]

The states with the highest mortality rates from drugs, alcohol and suicide, among white non-Hispanics aged 45-54, are geographically scattered. In 2000, the epidemic was centered in the southwest. By the mid-2000s it had spread to Appalachia, Florida, and the west coast. Today, it’s country-wide. The authors suggest that the increases in deaths of despair are accompanied by a measurable deterioration in economic and social wellbeing, which has become more pronounced for each successive birth cohort. Marriage rates and labor force participation rates fall between successive birth… [read post]

The Supreme Court unanimously rejected the lower court’s ruling that schools only need to provide a… [read post]
