No one making under $400,000 per year will see their taxes go up a single penny because of my Build Back Better Agenda. In fact, the plan cuts taxes for working people.

Mourning Jack Hoffinger, a great man with a great sense of humor. He once said his mother told him he could do anything so long as he was smart, tough, and not dishonest. She was clearly right. We will miss him immensely. law.nyu.edu/news-in-memoriam…

I just wrote this out in response to an incoming student’s question about approaching law school reading (versus class reading they’d done in the past). Thought I’d share it here in case it’s helpful.

So proud of my friend & soon to be NYU colleague (YAHOO!) @Captcarl06 for the rave reviews I'm hearing for Seize the King. So glad the arts are coming back!
It is an absolute joy to encounter the ambitious design in Will Power’s “Seize the King,” a contemporary verse spin on “Richard III,” in Marcus Garvey Park, @collinshughes writes. nyti.ms/3i4YniH

Could solve this problem by naming @AJosephOConnell
President Biden has not yet nominated someone to run the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, an important position that mediates disagreements between departments. @AJosephOConnell comments on Sharon Block, the interim leader via @Bloomberg stanford.io/3kZYnDE

Excited about this new platform for "decarceral brainstorming" -- particularly since the opening issue features so many great voices including the brilliant @ManekaSinha on transformative forensics & my awesome colleague @RachelBarkow on clemency.
We are live! Come join the brainstorm. inquest.org

Important article about due process and black-box technology. Spoiler: they're incompatible. And judges are increasingly holding that evidence is only allowable if the defendant has a meaningful opportunity to challenge it. washingtonpost.com/local/leg…
