Weekend Roundup

  • Current LHB Guest Blogger Anna Lvovsky discusses Vice Patrol: Cops, Courts, and the Struggle Over Urban Gay Life Before Stonewall, over at the ABA Journal’s Legal Talk Network.
  • OUP's History of International Law Collection is open-access until July 31. Load up here.\
  • We join those mourning the passing of Robert Katzmann, former chief justice of US Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit and an excellent scholar of courts, administration, and statutory interpretation. His Regulatory Bureaucracy: The Federal Trade Commission and Antitrust Policy (1981) was, among other things, an important contribution to the legal history history of the “proministrative state” for its demonstration of the different approaches of the FTC’s lawyers and economists to antitrust enforcement.
  • Best names in law and legal history: here and here.
  • We note, a little belatedly, that Evelyn Atkinson has reviewed Ex Parte Milligan Reconsidered: Race and Civil Liberties from the Lincoln Administration to the War on Terror, ed. Stewart L. Winger and Jonathan W. White (University Press of Kansas, 2020) on H-Nationalism.
  • Celebration of yesterday's 75th anniversary of the Administrative Procedure Act was, shall we say, muted, in our environs at least, but we were pleased to learn that Emily S. Bremer, Notre Dame Law, and Kathryn E. Kovacs, Rutgers Law, have compiled the Bremer-Kovacs Collection: Historic Documents Related to the Administrative Procedure Act of 1946, which is forthcoming on HeinOnline.
  •  ICYMI: News and commentary on bans of Critical Race Theory arrive too fast for us to keep up, but note this comment by Jill Richardson, a doctoral student in sociology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

Weekend Roundup is a weekly feature compiled by all the Legal History bloggers.
