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.
