New Articles on Sports and Procedure

Two recent articles posted on SSRN address the intersection of sports and procedure. 

Off-Court Misbehavior: Sports Leagues and Private Punishment by Janine Kim and Matthew Parlow at Marquette University School of Law focuses on criminal law and theory, but the emphasis on private disciplinary tribunals may be of interest to civil procedure folks, especially those of us who teach Rose v. Giamatti, 721 F. Supp. 906 (S.D.Ohio 1989).

Comparative Procedure on a Sunday Afternoon: Instant Replay in the NFL as a Process of Appellate Review by Chad Oldfather and Matthew Fernholz, also of Marquette, uses the analogy of a judge as baseball umpire "as a vehicle for illustrating some general characteristics of a process of decisional review."
