New Draft Papers

I have two new articles on SSRN and in circulation to law reviews.

Zombie Laws explores something I discussed here--the statute that remains on the books following a judicial declaration of invalidity, which Fifth Circuit Judge Gregg Costa called a "zombie law." The article discusses how Congress and state legislatures can narrow, expand, or eliminate them. Larry Solum was good enough to flag this one.

Congress and Universal Injunctions discusses five legislative proposals for eliminating universal injunctions and why they do or do not work tor resolve the problem.

The Zombie Laws link links to a Zoom presentation.

Garamond. I read somewhere that if all US Govt publications used it, we would save some ridiculous amount of paper every year. So I have used it since.

A bit of a strange question: what font did you use in the zombie laws paper? i'm quite taken with it.
