Congress Should Fix the Nationwide Injunction Problem with a Lottery

The Administrative Conference’s forum on nationwide injunctions certainly is well-timed. Just days ago, the Court published Justice Gorsuch’s concurring opinion in Department of Homeland Security v.

A Reply to Bray’s Response to The Lost History of the “Universal” Injunction, by Mila Sohoni

In Multiple Chancellors, Professor Bray argued that federal courts should give only a “plaintiff-protective injunction, enjoining the defendant’s conduct only with respect to the plaintiff,” “[n]o matter how important the question and how important the value of uniformity,” with respect to federal defendants.

That’s the title of a new article of mine, slated for publication in the Michigan Law Review. It’s more polemical than most of my work, and it aims to disrupt some of the tidy stories that organize modern administrative law. Although I hope it finds an audience across the political spectrum, its primary target is […]
