Heritage panel on preemption

I may have a new job as what David Lat calls the “Class Action Avenger” and a new blog to go with it, but that doesn’t mean I won’t be speaking about more general legal reform issues. A Heritage Foundation panel on preemption, featuring Kyle Sampson, former NHTSA and DOT general counsel Jeffrey Rosen, and myself is now viewable online. It’s only fair to note that I cribbed a lot from Michael Greve’s Bradley Lecture on federalism (video), which I can’t recommend enough.


  • […] Larry Ribstein and Alexandra Lahav comment favorably, and Scott Greenfield semi-snarks about my new job. […]

  • Ted, congratulations on your new gig. Should we be referring to you as John Steed from now on? Unfortunately what is needed is this type of Avenger to clean up the travesty that class actions have become. Hulk smash class action lawyers!
