The Post On Figuring Out What Congress Wants
Posted by David Zaring

When I don't have my business regulation hat on, sometimes the research turns to straight up public law, as, for example, it did in an empirical project done with David Law, in which we found that "Liberal justices are generally more likely than conservative justices to cite legislative history [and] the decline in the overall use of legislative history since the mid-1980s reflects a rightward shift in the ideological composition of the court."

Anyway, Robert Barnes of the Washington Post wrote about the article in his latest column on the difficulties the Supreme Court has in discerning what Congress wants.  Which, perhaps for selfish reasons, I thought was a good read!
