Any news outlets seeking a quote for an article on Raich should contact Professor Richard Garnett at Notre Dame Law School; or Professor Kmiec from Pepperdine Law School.
Prof. Garnett has been involved with many significant federalism cases, including, from last Term, Sabri v. United States. He has also written a substantial amount of scholarship on the constitutional infirmities of many federal criminal laws. See, e.g., The New Federalism, the Spending Power, and Federal Criminal Law.
Prof. Kmiec has published two Constitutional Law casebooks, including one on federalism and separation of powers. He also wrote an amicus brief, supporting Angel Raich, on behalf on the CATO Institute.
Both are thoughtful and friendly: Your article will be better - and your spirits higher - after speaking with either of them.
