Check it Out: Shugerman on Mueller Protection (and Scalia's Dissent in Morrison)
Check out Jed Shugerman's piece in Slate, Stare Scalia, arguing that some Senator's obsession with Justice Scalia's dissent in Morrison v. Olson "is leading them to make sloppy mistakes."
Shugerman wrote after Senator Ben Sasse said during last week's Judiciary Committee debate over the Mueller protection bill that "[m]any of us think we are bound" by Justice Scalia's lone dissent in Morrison.
Here's Steve Vladeck and Eric Posner's letter to the committee explaining why Sasse's position is wrong. Here's our coverage of the Committee's hearing last September on these same issues.
