Debs and the Federal Equity Jurisdiction
Debs and the Federal Equity Jurisdiction, a new article with Professor Aditya Bamzai, has just been published in the Notre Dame Law Review. You can read it here, and this is the abstract:
The United States can sue for equitable relief without statutory authorization. The leading case on this question is In re Debs, and how to understand that case is of both historical and contemporary importance. Debs was a monumental opinion that prompted responses in the political platforms of major parties, presidential ad- dresses, and enormous academic commentary.
