Amid all the debates and disputes about Merrick Garland's nomination to serve on the Supreme Court, ZiefBrief occasionally comes across a nugget of — dare we say it? — objective information.
Today's nugget is NYU Law Review's Merrick Garland Project, which the editors describe as follows:
The Merrick Garland Project seeks to present Judge Garland’s record in a unique way—by curating a selection of opinions he has authored while on the D.C. Circuit, condensing them, and organizing them by subject matter. We launched on March 21, 2016 with opinions in four principal categories: constitutional law, civil rights, criminal law, and administrative law. More opinions and categories will be released in the coming days and weeks as the Project develops.
The Project analyses (and links to) Garland opinions that are in some way significant — "opinions that are highly cited, clarify a previously unsettled area of the law, or are written for a divided court."
