Description

Professor Amanda Frost, of American University Washington College of Law, presented a working draft of her work In Defense of Nationwide Injunctions. This work provides the first sustained academic defense of nationwide injunctions. In some cases, nationwide injunctions are the only means to provide plaintiffs with complete relief, or to prevent harm to thousands of individuals who cannot quickly bring their own cases before the courts.
