The Irrepressible Myth of Rethinking and Taking Things Seriously: A Reply to Wexler

Jay's post on the use of Rethinking and Taking Seriously in legal scholarship reminds me that my current project (to be eviscerated at PrawfsFest! this week) is entitled The Irrepressible Myth of Klein. Surprisingly enough, a Westlaw search found only three other cases that have been tagged as irrepressible myths by scholars.

Can you name them?


Celotex Corp. v. Catrett: Adam Steinman
Marbury v. Madison: Michael Paulsen
Erie RR v. Tompkins: John Hart Ely
