Click the link at the bottom of this post to listen to my interview with Prof. Stephen I. Vladeck on his forthcoming article, The Increasingly "Unflagging Obligation": Federal Jurisdiction after Saudi Basic and Anna Nicole, which will be part of the Tulsa Law Review's Supreme Court Symposium this summer.
This interview should intrigue anyone even remotely interested in federal jurisdiction (not because of my questions but because of his answers). Stephen discusses what he calls the Supreme Court's "increasingly felicitous" view of federal jurisdiction. What's motivating the Supreme Court to expand federal jurisdiction and what are the consequences?
A big thank you to Prof. Vladeck for giving the interview. I should also say he had no idea he would be the inaugural interviewee when he said this.
We plan to post a new interview every Thursday, with topics ranging from upcoming articles to teaching ideas to practitioner views on hot procedural issues. If you have an idea for an interview or an article that needs the attention of both our readers, don't hesitate to tell us about it.
