Haywood v. Drown

The Supreme Court heard arguments on last Thursday in Haywood v Drown.  The bulk of the argument focused on the jurisdictional issue.  As SCOTUSblog pointed out, at one point Justice Alito asked whether there was some "Platonic ideal of jurisdiction versus non-jurisdiction.”  You can read the full argument transcript here.  Also of interest is the amicus brief filed by a group of constitutional law and civil procedure professors arguing for reversal of the New York Court of Appeals decision.  You can read that here.
