Professor Joseph Mead Publishes Essay on RegBlog

Professor Joseph Mead published an online essay at RegBlog, which is published by University of Pennsylvania Program on Regulation. The essay discusses Professor Mead’s co-authored article entitled Choosing a Court to Review the Executive, which is forthcoming in the Administrative Law Review. In both the essay and the article, Professor Mead analyzes the complicated maze for determining where a lawsuit challenging the actions of the federal government must be filed. Professor Mead concludes that the current system is unjustifiably confusing, and proposes a framework for making clearer and better jurisdictional decisions when it comes to reviewing federal agency decisions.
