The following post comes to us from Prof. J. Scott Colesanti and a former student of his, Karen Eng. Scott is a Professor of Legal Writing at the Maurice A. Deane School of Law at Hofstra University, a former co-editor of this blog, and author of "Legal Writing, All Business."
F.A.A. VACATUR IN THE SECOND CIRCUIT: NOW THAT TOM BRADY HAS SAT, WHERE DO WE STAND?
By J. Scott Colesanti and Karen Eng (October 12, 2016)
Late in the summer, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady announced that he would not further appeal the discipline imposed against him by the National Football League ("NFL"). That decision ended an 18-month ordeal which highlighted, among other things, the unpredictability of sports league sanctions, in general, and the finality of penalties under NFL Collective Bargaining Agreement ("CBA") Article 46, in particular. This article examines the resulting state of the law in the Second Circuit regarding review of arbitrations under Sections 10(a)(2) and (3) of the Federal Arbitration Act ("F.A.A."), which provided – in part - the means for Brady's appeal.

The following is being posted on behalf of Jonathan Adler, the Johan Verheij Memorial Professor of Law, and Director of the Center for Business Law and Regulation, at Case Western Reserve University School of Law.
In recent years, the Supreme Court appears to have taken a greater interest in "business" issues, leading court watchers to question whether this is a change in the Court's orientation, or if it is the natural outcome of the appellate process. Is the Court "pro-business"? If so, in what ways do the Court's decisions support business interests and what does that mean for the law and the American public? On September 23, the Center for Business Law and Regulation at Case Western Reserve University will host a conference, "Business in the Roberts Court" to explore these questions. Speakers include Catherine Sharkey (NYU), Todd Henderson (Chicago), James Copland (Manhattan Inst), Brianne Gorod (CAC), Suzette Malveaux (Catholic), Cassandra Robertson (CWRU), Mitch Pickerill (NIU), Andrew Grossman (Baker & Hoestetler), Jonathan Adler (CWRU), Karen Harned (NFIB) and Ohio State Solicitor Eric Murphy. The conference is open to the public and 4.5 hours of CLE credit are available. It will also be webcast live. Details are here.
As you know, assessment is of critical importance these days, and I am confident that in a few years most, if not all, law school casebooks will come with effective, out-of-the-box, turnkey assessments. If you believe your book is already there, or even close, please send your pitch to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Assuming no unforeseen problems, I plan to post these pitches here, as I am sure they will be of interest to many of our readers.

The University of Akron Law Review recently published its Symposium on Law and SocioEconomics. You can find a full list of the contributions here (Volume 49, Issue 2). As one of the organizers of the symposium, I had the honor of writing a conclusion to the issue, titled Socio-Economics: Challenging Mainstream Economic Models and Policies. I provide the abstract below, and you can read the entire piece here.
At a time when many people are questioning the ability of our current system to provide economic justice, the Socio-Economic perspective is particularly relevant to finding new solutions and ways forward. In this relatively short conclusion to the Akron Law Review’s publication, Law and Socio-Economics: A Symposium, I have separated the Symposium articles into three groups for review: (1) those that can be read as challenging mainstream economic models, (2) those that can be read as challenging mainstream policy conclusions, and (3) those that provide a good example of both. My reviews essentially take the form of providing a short excerpt from the relevant article that will give the reader a sense of what the piece is about and hopefully encourage those who have not yet done so to read the entire article.
