I Am Going to Need Some Volunteers in a Couple Weeks

A prominent law professor and I are writing a law review article exposing how the 9th Circus decision Young v. Hawaii cited lots of early Republic laws that prohibited carrying of firearms.  Regular readers will know that I discovered many were not at the cited locations and some were selectively quoted.  I am going to need 2 or 3 of you to read the paper for typos and such but also following the links to these session laws (the laws actually passed in each legislative session to verify that the page image actually comes from that volume and that the link points to the stated year and state. I am trying to be very careful but three pair of eyes are better than one.  This cannot have any errors if we want to demonstrate that these people are both incompetent and liars.

Thanks.  I have enough.


  1. It occurred to me a few years ago that all judges should be audited on a regular basis. That is, someone should go through all judicial opinions and rulings, and check all references for validity.

    Judges whose cites are wrong should be called on it.

    As to your request, IANAL and I am more or less housebound these days (full-time caregiver, plus three days ago I sprained a knee in a bike crash). But I'm very good at spotting typos and I can do on-line research.
