Weekend Roundup

  • The historians' brief in the Emoluments Clause case, CREW v. Trump, is out.  Signatories are Jed Handelsman Shugerman, John Mikhail, Jack N. Rakove, Gautham Rao, and Simon Stern.
  • Update: according to a story in the Hartford Courant, with the cessation on August 25 of its use "for the purpose of a county courthouse," the land on which Litchfield's 250-year old courthouse sits will revert to "the heirs of the original six proprietors who leased the land to the county in 1803."
Weekend Roundup is a weekly feature compiled by all the Legal History bloggers.
