Jerry on the caliber of my section 1983 litigation posts

Jerry says here there may or may not be a bunch of buckshot in my section 1983 litigation posts, there's really no telling either way.

The point was that the Supreme Court has been making it more difficult for people to sue state officials and local governments to enforce some kinds of federal law rights, including Medicaid, housing subsidies, etc., and this is sort of a trendy topic (thus the NYT piece) because Judge Roberts argued one of the main cases. FERPA is the federal law requiring schools to keep records on students private.

This is not the first time I've been heckled about acronyms and other obscurities on this blog, but JF is right, it's what I like.
