Scott Lemieux: Intellectuals and Academics Obedient to Their Republican Political Masters, Part MCCXXVII, Shelby County Edition: Noted
Scott Lemieux: A Tribalism Bleg:
A correspondent asked me a good question that I’d figure I’d throw open to the hivemind. With the exceptions of Michael McConnell and Charles Fried (and the latter, as a Harlan disciple who was also critical of the constitutional arguments against the PPACA, barely counts these days), have any conservative law professors criticized Shelby County? Jonathan Adler stopped short of endorsing it but didn’t criticize it, either. I can’t think of any others. Have there been other critics in the conservative legal academy?
