My Father
Let me begin by quoting from a recently discovered letter that my dad wrote to his father, while serving as a lieutenant in the army in occupied Japan. It was 1946 and he was twenty-two years old. Here, already, he is refusing to acquiesce to social...
State Courts, Citizen Suits, and the Enforcement of Federal Environmental Law by Non-Article III Plaintiffs
