Weekend Roundup

  • There's some useful history of the Administrative Procedure Act and judicial deference to the statutory interpretation of administrative agencies in an administrative law professors' brief in Loper Bright Enterprises v. Raimondo.  Among other things, it engages with Aditya Bamzai's The Origins of Judicial Deference to Executive Interpretation, 126 Yale L.J. 908 (2017).
  • Robert L. Tsai, Boston University, has reviewed Cliff Sloan’s The Court at War: FDR, His Justices, and the World They Made in the Washington Monthly.  “Sloan has written an eminently readable book,” Professor Tsai writes, but “it is hard to escape the sense that The Court at War misses an opportunity to show us all the ways in which the imperative to go to war presented both opportunity and peril.” The Washington Post's review is here.  Sloan, a Professor from Practice at Georgetown Law, discusses his book with Malcolm Ferguson in the Washingtonian.
  •  A recording of a program held on September 7 by the Historical Society of the New York Courts’ on its exhibit on the "Lemmon Slave Case" is here.
