Weekend Roundup

  • Congratulations to legal historians recently named John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Fellow for 2019-20.  These include ASLH President-Elect Lauren Benton, Vanderbilt University, for "Legalities of Small Wars in European Empires, 1400-1900"; Lena Salaymeh, Buchmann Faculty of Law, Tel Aviv University for "Revolutionary Islamic Law"; and Brad Snyder, Georgetown Law, for "Democratic Justice: Felix Frankfurter, Judicial Restraint, and the Creation of the Liberal Establishment." The complete list of recipients is here.
  • I'm grateful to Virginia Law's Aditya Bamzai for posting his amicus brief in PDR Network et al. v. Carlton & Harris Chiropractic, Inc., early in the same week in which I got to the Office of Price Administration in my legal history course, even though its discussion of Yakus is not the only treatment at hand of how the US squared the need for speedy wartime price control with the dictates of Article III.
