Take That, Holmes!
Two of my constitutional law students from this past spring are #1 and #2 respectively in the Bloomberg Law and SCOTUSblog's Supreme Court Challenge. Congratulations to Josh Goldman and Justin Jacobs for their uncanny accuracy. It must have been our painstaking coverage of Calder v. Bull that helped them to predict the outcome of Peugh v. United States. Mr. Jacobs picked "Protect Sam Chase" as his team name, so I guess it stands to reason he'd get Peugh right (I know, I know. Probably I've got the rules wrong and they didn't even need to predict Peugh, but please just let me imagine that they did). Look out for those remaining cases, though. I'm guessing they'll be tough to prognosticate. But my guesses are always wrong.
Somewhere, gazing down from his seat nearby that brooding omnipresence in the sky, Justice Holmes is smiling at me. But I predict his irritated, disapproving scowl will be back in place tomorrow.
