Article: Herbert W. Titus on “Judge Posner’s Emporium”

Michael Harless Publications

Today Herb Titus wrote a powerful critique of 7th Circuit Judge Richard Posner’s astonishing concurring opinion in Hively v. Ivy Tech Community College, issued April 4, 2017.  That case determined that discrimination based on “sex” really means “sexual orientation” — irrespective of what Congress meant when it enacted Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act.  The article was published by the Judicial Action Group.

USJF Legal Policy Paper: The Dangerous Proposal for an Article V Constitutional Convention

Michael Harless Constitutional Law, Publications

Today, Bill Olson and Herb Titus co-authored a Legal Policy Paper for the United States Justice Foundation on the serious dangers associated with the calling of an Article V Constitutional Convention. The paper addressed two false premises underlying the proposal: 1. The problem of big government is found in the text of the U.S. Constitution, which can be corrected by changing the words of the document. 2. The only remedy to the problem of an out-of-control federal government is changing the Constitutional text. Additionally, our paper addressed the two false assurances being offered by those demanding that state legislatures put at risk all of our constitutional protections: 1. There is no danger of a Runaway Convention. 2. A small minority of the State Legislatures can stop bad proposals from being ratified.

Book: ‘Defining Drugs: How Government Became the Arbiter of Pharmaceutical Fact”

Michael Harless Administrative Law, Health Law, Publications

Bill Olson was honored to write the Foreword for the re-issuance of what may prove to be the most important book ever written questioning the authority of the federal government over the sale and use of pharmaceuticals.  Professor of Pharmacy Richard Henry Parrish II originally wrote his book, “Defining Drugs:  How Government Became the Arbiter of Pharmaceutical Fact” in 2003. Now issued in paperback with a new Introduction and new Foreword, Professor Parrish has charted the growing evidence of corruption in the FDA and FTC, and those agencies’ lawless assertion of power over all aspects of all substances and devices in any way related to healthcare.  This book is even more important now than when first written.

Legal Policy Paper: The Constitutional Case for an Interstate Border Compact

Michael Harless Publications

Today, we authored a paper entitled “The Constitutional Case for an Interstate Border Compact” for the United States Justice Foundation.  Even though President Obama is hostile to national immigration law, the states could step in and take the lead.  One way that they could assume this responsibility is entering into an “interstate border compact” as authorized by the U.S. Constitution.
