How Appealing

Sunday, April 14, 2019

Programming note: My visit to Atlanta to attend my 30th law school reunion will conclude Monday evening after I visit a law school class tomorrow and then speak with the participants in Emory Law’s Supreme Court clinic.

Because I won’t be returning home until late Monday night, additional posts will appear here on Tuesday morning. As always while I’m traveling, more frequent appellate-related retweets are likely to appear on this blog’s Twitter feed.
