Strengthening Constitutional Self-Government

Road Blogging

Greetings from I-71. Blogging at 70 mph is not for the faint of heart. I am on my way down to Cincinnati, where my Constitutional Law class will be viewing an en banc panel of the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals. I’ll attempt to give you updates from the road.

Sounds cool. What case is the Sixth Circuit rehearing en banc, Mr. Alt?

And are new, George W. Bush-appointed Judges Julia Smith Gibbons and John Rogers seated with the en banc court yet?

The Sixth Circuit heard two cases en banc yesterday: one looking at whether a Michigan policy of requiring suspicionless drug testing and treatment for welfare recipients was permissible under the "special needs" doctrine of the Fourth Amendment, and another case which involved interpretation of the statute of limitations for federal habeas law. Judges Gibbons and Rodgers sat for both cases.
