Amicus Metzger Talks About Free Enterprise Fund

I spoke yesterday with Professor Gillian Metzger (Columbia) about her amicus brief in Free Enterprise Fund v. Public Co. Accounting Oversight Board, the case challenging Sarbanes-Oxley's new PCAOB, a body within the SEC, on Appointments Clause and separation of powers grounds.  I just posted yesterday on Metzger's article on internal and external separation of powers; we spoke about that, as well.  Finally, Metzger offered sound advice for academics contemplating filing amicus briefs.

I edited the interview into three parts; click the shaded blocks below:
