Scholarship on Chinese law cited in US Supreme Court opinion

Yes, it has really happened. In footnote 2 of his dissent in United Haulers Assn., Inc. v. Oneida-Herkimer Solid Waste Management Authority (April 30, 2007), Justice Alito cites Owen, Sun, & Zheng, Antitrust in China: The Problem of Incentive Compatibility, 1 J. of Competition L. & Econ. 123 (2005) and Qin, WTO Regulation of Subsidies to State-owned Enterprises (SOEs): A Critical Appraisal of the China Accession Protocol, 7 J. of Int'l Econ. L. 863 (Dec. 2004). Qin is the only law professor in the group - she's at Wayne State.

Can you introduce more professors with background similar to Professor Qin? Thanks.

Blog editor's answer: If similar situations come up, I'll certainly note them, but so far I haven't had time to put together and publish profiles of all professors in the field.
