DC Circuit on Recess Appointment Power
Tom Smith

Here is a post from Volokh summarizing the opinion. But it fails to mention that our own Mike Rappaport was cited four times in the course of the opinon -- he seems to have been the go-to source on the original meaning of the clause. As one my colleagues said (more or less): "I guess originalism does make a difference!" (H/t CG) Congratulations to Mike on his scholarship and to the Court for picking it up. (I would link to the paper on SSRN but it doesn't seem to be there.)
