They'll lose their union cards for this

I haven't quite figured out what to make of the Supreme Court's decision in Hudson v. Michigan, the no-knock case, but one thing that made me laugh out loud was that Justice Scalia's opinion cites the work of Professors Avery, Blum, and Rudovsky, on the point of how easier it is to find a lawyer to sue a police officer.

I've enjoyed listening to Professors Avery, Blum, and Rudovsky a couple of times in the past, at section 1983 litigation seminars, but somehow I doubt that they are routinely in agreement with the views of Justice Scalia on section 1983 litigation.
