The farmer and the commerce clause

Roscoe Filburn

The landmark case of Wickard v. Filburn, 317 U.S. 111 (1942), has been the subject of extensive discussion on Agricultural Law, a sister site within the Jurisdynamics Network. Filburn has now drawn the attention of National Public Radio. I was interviewed in connection with a July 5, 2012, NPR broadcast that featured Filburn and its role in the Supreme Court's health care reform decision. I invite you to download the podcast of that interview. Better yet, simply enjoy the show right here:

I remember being outraged when I first read Wickard as a law student back in 1993. The professor, George Cochran of Old Miss (visting at Fordham) asked me to write a dissent, so I did. I just found a paper copy the other day, and scanned and posted it at: https://files.nyu.edu/jmm257/public/academic/wickard-dissent.pdf.
