Sagers’ Work on Federal Statute Names Featured in New York Times

Chris Sagers, the James A. Thomas Distinguished Professor of Law at Cleveland-Marshall College of Law, was featured in this week’s New York Times in a weekly legal affairs column by Adam Liptak.  In an entry entitled “Laws Deserve More Than Those Cute Names,” Liptak covered Sagers’ work on the naming of federal statutes, and what evolving trends in statute names say about the growing malaise in our federal Congress.

Sagers’s article, on which the  column is based, is entitled “A Statute by Any Other (Non-Acronomial) Name Might Smell Less Like S.P.A.M., or, The Congress of the United States Grows Increasingly D.U.M.B.”  You can view the paper at http://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=1113026
