Vanderbilt Law Review En Banc Roundtable: Williams-Yulee v. The Florida Bar

Vanderbilt Law Review En Banc, the online companion to the Vanderbilt Law Review, recently published its Roundtable on the upcoming case, Williams-Yulee v. The Florida Bar, set to be argued before the Supreme Court on January 20, 2015. In Williams-Yulee, the Court considers whether a rule of judicial conduct that bans judicial candidates from directly soliciting campaign funds violates the First Amendment. The case has important implications, as currently thirty-nine states elect at least some of their judges and at least twenty have adopted rules of judicial conduct that prohibit candidates for judicial office from personally soliciting campaign funds. Beyond an obvious split among both federal and state appellate courts, Williams-Yulee presents a conflict between the scope of protection afforded by the First Amendment of political speech and the need for judicial impartiality and integrity. Authors Robert O’Neil, Ruthann Robson, Chris Bonneau, Shane Redman, David Earley, Matthew Menendez, Stephen Ware, Charles Geyh, Burt Neuborne, Michael DeBow, and Brannon Denning tackle these questions and more in their contributions.

Vanderbilt Law Review En Banc Roundtable: Comptroller v. Wynne

Vanderbilt Law Review En Banc, the online companion to the Vanderbilt Law Review, recently published its Roundtable on the upcoming case, Comptroller v. Wynne, set to be argued before the Court on November 12, 2014. In Wynne, the Court considers whether the Constitution bans a state from taxing its residents’ income, wherever earned, by requiring a credit for taxes paid on income taxed in other states. The Court could answer many questions: How far is the reach of the dormant Commerce Clause in the context of income taxation? What is the extent of a state’s power to enforce personal income taxes on its residents? What kinds of residents are subject to double taxation and why? Professors Edward Zelinsky, Dan Coenen, Brannon Denning, Norman Williams, Michael Greve, and Adam Thimmesch tackle these questions and more in their contributions.
