Law School’s Jonathan H. Adler pens three pieces on U.S. Supreme Court and judicial review

Jonathan H. Adler, the Johan Verheij Memorial Professor of Law and director of the Center for Business Law and Regulation, wrote three op-eds for The Volokh Conspiracy, a blog by law professors and lawyers across the country hosted by Reason.

In an article titled “More on Sessions v. Dimaya and crossover sensation Neil Gorsuch,” Adler examined what might have motivated Justice Gorsuch to side with the more liberal justices on the U.S. Supreme Court, suggesting that this behavior may be repeated.

Another article, titled “SCOTUS released same-day oral argument audio. Guess what happened next?” also focused on the U.S. Supreme Court, which recently released the audio file of the oral arguments in Trump v. Hawaii on the same day it was argued. Adler considered what potential effects—positive and negative—this decision may have if made an official policy.

In “When is agency action final for purposes of judicial review?” Adler discussed final agency action and its interpretation in recent court cases, particularly Judge Patricia Millet’s opinion in Soundboard Association v. Federal Trade Commission.
