Federalist panel on reg-by-lit



I took part this weekend in a panel discussion at the Federalist Society National Lawyers Convention in Washington, D.C. on the subject of regulation by litigation. My remarks inquired into the subject of why Congress isn't more jealous of its prerogatives when the "Fourth Branch" of trial lawyers exercises lawmaking ambitions in areas like tobacco, guns and health care. The question period got into federalism, among other topics. Law professor Jonathan Adler of Case Western was there and blogged the whole thing at Commons Blog (Nov. 12).
