Sagers Speaks With Press on Unprecedented Inter-Agency Antitrust Conflict

Chris Sagers, the James A. Thomas Professor of Law, spoke with Bloomberg for a story

Professor Kalir, responding to questions about a possible constitutional crisis, observed that the biggest risk he currently observes is a repetition of the “Travel Ban” saga, where most of the lower courts dealing with the issue were unanimous in their legal opinion, only to be reversed by the Supreme Court in a 5:4 decision. Such decision, Kalir predicted, may paint the Court in stark political colors and as an extension of the Executive Branch.
