WLF Debuts New "Circulating Opinion" Publication Format

On Friday, April 21, Washington Legal Foundation introduced a new publication format, Circulating Opinion.

With this new format, WLF will raise the profile of judicial opinions that speak to key points of law and address concepts relevant to our free-enterprise mission.

Circulating Opinion offers a judge's opinion in abridged form, an approach that allows the essence of a case to be gleaned quickly.

The debut edition offers a digest of a dissenting opinion from Ninth Circuit Judge Diarmuid O'Scannlain. It can be viewed by clicking here.
